Hello everyone, just discovered some information for the upcoming Death Note Musical and thought I would share it!
In case some of you don't know, it was announced that a Death Note musical is in the works in Japan, to be played in Japan and Korea. Music is being written by Frank Wildehorn, the author of such Broadway musicals as "The Scarlet Pimpernell" and "Jeckyll and Hyde" and as I love both of these musicals I'm sure he's going to do the story great justice. Jack Murphy writing the lyrics and Ivan Menchell the script. Tamiya Kuriyama directs.
There is now a website for it: www.j-deathnote.com/portal/mus…
which of course is all in Japanese but here is the information I have about it that I know so far and it isn't much:
Japan - April 2015 - Nissay Theatre (Tokyo)
Korea - July and August 2015 - LG Arts Centre (Seoul)
Can't wait to find out the casting...keeping my fingers crossed that it will be as awesome as it seems it will be!
