Actresses Chihiro Otsuka, 23, and Rina Chinen, 28, will star in the upcoming stage musical "Dance of the Vampires." Otsuka and Chinen both portray Sarah, a character who is attacked by a vampire played by Yuichiro Yamaguchi, 52.

Otsuka, who is playing the role of Sarah for the second time, said that she wants to perfect her sex appeal, while Chinen, who is new to the role, said she will put all that she can into the role, especially the bath scenes.

“Dance of the Vampires” will start on Sunday at the Imperial Theater in Tokyo.

to perfect her sex appeal, while Chinen, who is new to the role, said she will put all that she can into the role, especially the bath scenes.

Is this a pornographic musical or something?

Gaijinocchio, what else can sell here? And the meaning of the words sex appeal, child porn, adult, etc have a totally different meaning here. Good idea for linguists: a dictionary of the actual meaning of borrowed words in the Jcontext.

Well, this is based on the 1967 spoof horror movie "Dance of the Vampires" - written by, and starring alleged kiddie-fiddler Roman Polanski along with his wife Sharon Tate (shortly before she was butchered, whilst pregnant, by Charles Manson and his psycho "family").

So - it should have everything your average Japanese sadist or sociopath would ever want from a musical, eh?

BTW: The wiki page describing this musical's broadway run says:

Dance of the Vampires is one of the biggest financial flops in Broadway history, losing roughly $12 million, easily eclipsing the infamous musical Carrie

Hardly a glowing recommendation to bother going and seeing it sung in Japanese.

Well, it's piqued my interest already :)
