Sailor Moon “Super Live” PerformanceWednesday July 11th, 2018
Sailor Moon will be returning as a stage show — referred to as The Super Live — this August.
The story will be a retelling of Naoko Takeuchi’s first Sailor Moon story arc. But the trailer (above) and the poster (below) give off a definite sci-fi/techno vibe. Given the director behind the production, we can absolutely expect something intense.
Japanese dancer and choreographer TAKAHIRO (full name Takahiro Ueno) serves as director and choreographer for the new show. He rose to fame for his inventive hip-hop dancing style, and has accompanied Madonna on tour as a special act. More recently, he’s appeared in music videos with composer and singer Hyadain.
Hyadain is also on board here as he is making the music for the show. Born Kenichi Maeyamada, he composed for idol groups while carrying on a stealth singing gig on Nico Video under a pseudonym. You may remember him as the guy who sang both male and female voice parts with the help of a filter. Since then he’s revealed his identity and gone on to work under his NicoNico pseudonym.
The show will have three separate lead casts rotating out throughout its run.
