Norika Fujiwara starts her run in 'Cabaret'

11 Comments

Actress Norika Fujiwara, 38, started her run as the lead in the musical "Cabaret" on Thursday night at Yurakucho's Nissay Theater.

Fujiwara first appeared in a stage musical last year in "The Drowsy Chaperone. "Cabaret" tells the story of a pre-World War II hostess in Berlin and her romance with an American novelist, played by Tsuyoshi Abe. The highlight of the show is the moment when the two characters kiss. "They kept telling us to do it with more feeling. Including rehearsals, we'll probably do it about 500 times," said Fujiwara.

The actress, who is rumored to be in a relationship with professional golfer Tomohiro Kondo, 32, said, "We're not quite there, just good friends."

"Norika still has it."

Not hard when you can afford the cosmetic surgery.

What is it with kissing? Japanese dramas rarely get it right either. Kissing scenes are usually pretty awkward/weird, very stiff with little feeling.
