Yamada Takayuki to star in musical "The Full Monty"
It was announced that actor Yamada Takayuki will be starring in musical "The Full Monty" that will open January of next year. This will mark Yamada's first appearance on the stage.
Yamada commented, "I'm chuckling to myself that no one expected I would chose a musical for my first stage, and that it would be this work."
The musical is a Japanese adaptation of the popular Broadway musical that was based on the 1997 British film of the same name. Set in Buffalo, New York, it will depict 6 unemployed men dreaming of making a fortune with just one stroke by challenging on a strip show.
The direction and translation will be served by Fukuda Yuichi. Yamada has worked with Fukuda previously in drama "Yuusha Yoshihiko" series, as well as in movie "Ore wa Mada Honki Dashitenai Dake."
Yamada said about the original movie, "It's a wonderful work as it changes difficulties in lives like divorce or attempted suicide, into laughs, and you can feel warmth in people's hearts with joy."
Other than Yamada, Owada Miho, Nakamura Tomoya, Muro Tsuyoshi, and Katsuya have also been chosen as the cast members.
