Ex-Takarazuka top star, Wao Youka, to challenge herself through “Dracula”
Takarazuka Otokoyaku’s former top star (from the Cosmos Troupe), Wao Youka has been chosen to play Count Dracula for the musical “Dracula“, scheduled to begin in August 2011. This will be the first time for Wao to play a male role after she left the Takarazuka Revue in 2006, and she will be the first woman to play this role.
The musical “Dracula” premiered on Broadway back in 2004, and it’s based off Bram Stoker’s classic gothic novel.
Wao commented, “I want to show the evolution from my Otokoyaku days in Takarazuka Revue.”
