TITANIC the musical 2015
Our Artistic Director YOJIRO ICHIKAWA recently worked as the Assistant Director to Thom Southerland in Japanese Production of TITANIC the musical which was transferred from Southwerk Playhouse. He also adapted the show into Japanese and worked as the vocal supervisor.
“歌詞が明瞭に聴こえ、６拍子における二連符を丁寧に歌うなど、歌唱が行き届いているのが優れた点の一つだ。：One of the prominent things about this production was the vocal supervision. I didn’t find any problem in understanding the Japanese lyrics which is quite rare in translated musicals and could see that the vocal of actors were well supervised very much in details.”
