Phoenix Wright: The All-Woman Musical

Yes, you heard me right...Phoenix Wright. Musical. All women.

Phoenix Wright the Musical
Phoenix Wright the Musical
This is too good to be true: not only is there a live-action musical based on Gyakuten Saiban (better known to US fans as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney) in the works...it's also a takarazuka-style show, which means women play all the roles in a flamboyantly campy production.


The group performing the musical is the Takarazuka Revue, and Japan Probe ponders whether the traditional audience of takarazuka shows (college-age and 60+ women) will be joined by a new set of fans...like, say, otaku? I dunno, but man, if I was going to be in Japan I would absolutely go and see this-- it's just too awesome.
