Morning Musume performing Roger and Hamerstiens Cinderella

To those of you who don’t know, Roger and Hamerstien are AWSOME.  As a musical/broadway geek, I love their stuff.  My singing teacher told me about the version of Cinderella they did, so I looked it up (the version with Julie Andrews) and watched it today – sooo cute and charming! And while looking around I found that Takarazuka, an all-female Japanese theater company, joined up with Morning Mesume, an all-girl Japanese pop band, to make their own version of the musical.  All the characters are performed by girls (as is common in Japanese ‘all-female-theater-companies’…duh) and the actors are really very good.  It’s subbed so you can watch it even if you don’t understand Japanese.  As someone interested in Theater Arts for a career I have to give this a high rating for beautiful costume design and cute actors ^.^
