Kabuki

In Amsterdam! And I am going! Blew my paycheck on two first class tickets, but who cares? Not me. I want to see Kabuki in real life and... *swoon* be all fan-girlish and see the pretty Ebizo Ichikawa XI as Fuji Musume. *sigh*
And as the brute Yoemon in Kasane; Kasane is played by Kamejiro Ichikawa II whom makes, I believe an even prettier lady then Ebizo is... Can't wait...

Ebizo Ichikawa XI is not really or should I say not only(?) an onnagata actor, he plays many male roles too in Kabuki. Not like Tamasaburo Bando
And I think he got his fame and "star-dom" mostly because of his role of Musashi, well at least amongst the younger generation and because of this he made kabuki popular with younger generations too, can't say that's a bad thing ^_~ And I must say... he did make a wonderful handsome Musashi... Ok enough drooling over handsome samurai...
