I've watched The Sun King serveral times now and I'm impressed.

I've seen the French version on youtube when zaraphena first pointed it out. Yes, the French
had a lot more gymnastics and circus acts but I didn't miss them at all.

Yuzuki is great and they put her dancing to good use. She dances a lot in this production. I'm going to miss her.

I wondered what they would do with all the major female parts and it was a real treat to see all the
musume get major parts. It was refreshing.

Of course Bene played the part I figured she would and it was perfect for her.

Did all of Hoshi take voice lessons?? Makaze's voice is now deep and strong and Bene sounded great.
I no longer cringe when I think of her as a future top.
Even Yuzuki and Masako sounded better. It was amazing.

I hope they redo this as a grand stage production but who would be good in this role?

1. What have you been up to in the last year or two?
Turned 60. In the last two years I've done 14 half marathons which should make my doctor happy except I've gained weight because I get hungry doing all this exercise!

2. What is the last Takarazuka show you saw and what did you think of it?
Sun King (DVD) Fantastic! See my review

3. What was your favorite Takarazuka show of 2013?
Toss up between Phoenix Wright 3 and Wild Meets the Wild. I miss Hiro and Hasumi Yuuya
The worst: REON II. How many songs were from the first concert?

4. What actress surprised you the most in 2013?
I didn't watch a lot of the shows from 2013 and I'm still confused after that mass transfer.

5. What do you think about the 100th anniversary so far?
Too many retirements! Wish they they did some more old productions.

6. What troupe you do think will win the Sports Day Festival? (And what troupe will you be rooting for regardless?)
Tsukigumi. Remember Masaki in the musical chairs in 2004? She was the one that would grab a chair away from people so that they would fall on the ground.
I'm sure that she's teaching that technique to everyone.
Yukigumi since I'll be sitting in that section.

7. What shows do you want for 2015?
Not something repeated from this year except the Sun King. Did we really need Jin again?
