As for the play itself, it will debut in January 2020 at Tokyo’s Toshima Ward Performing Arts Exchange Theater (Owl Spot). And like other anime/manga-based plays, they’re also planning to do shows in other cities across the country. American composer, Frank Wildhorn, wrote the scripts while Jack Murphy wrote the lyrics. Another American, Ivan Menchell, wrote the play’s scripts. Meanwhile, award-winning Japanese director, Tamiya Kuriyama, is directing the musical.
