Noteworthy performance troupe “Takarazuka Revue” (consisting entirely of female actresses) has revealed the costumes for their upcoming Rurouni Kenshin musical, providing something for theater and dansou fans to really get their teeth into.
The reputable troupe have created numerous musicals in the past, including productions featuring Phoenix Wright, Ocean’s 11 and Legend of the Galactic Heroes, and with such a eclectic repertoire a Rurouni Kenshin musical is none too surprising.
