The musical was scheduled to be shown from January 8 to 31 at Theater Crea in Tokyo, then from February 4 to 6 at NGK Spark Plug Civic Center in Aichi. Sakamoto was supposed to play the role of the Prince in a double cast with Doi Hiroko, but has cancelled her appearance due to health reasons. She will be replaced by Kato Ririka.
