2.5D stage plays are all the rage now in Japan, and one of the hottest today is Katekyo Hitman Reborn! the STAGE – vs VARIA part Ⅰ-. The play opened in Tokyo last June 14, with lots of performances sold out already. And now, to tease fans who haven’t watched the shows yet, Marvelous has released set photos from the play’s dress rehearsal, which was done the day before the first performance.
The play stars Reborn’s seiyuu from the anime, NEEKO, reprising her role as the infamous mafioso. It also features much of the cast from the first stage play, along with several new additions. You can check out the cast through this link.
The stage play is titled Katekyo! Hitman Reborn! The Stage vs Varia Part I. It will first run at the Theater 1010 in Tokyo from June 14-23. The play will then head to Osaka’s Kashiwara City Cultural-Riviere Hall from June 27-30. Maruichirou Maruo will be directing the play once again, as well as writing the script.
