vol.47 : Nakamura Kikaku
In April, at an event titled "Naniwa Hanagata
Kabuki," which will be performed by a kamigata-style
cast at Osaka's Shochiku-za Theatre, three famous,
kamigata kyogen plays will be featured in a production
by W Cast. We had a chance to catch up with Nakamura
Kikaku, who in the third part of the production
plays one of the leads, Kawachiya Yohee, in Chikamatsu
Monzaemon's Onnagoroshi Abura no Jigoku (The Woman
Killer and the Hell of Oil).
