Singer Shigeaki Kato, 21, member of pop group NEWS, and model-actress Natsuki Kato, 23, will star in “Seminar,” a stage play about a sex addict. The play opens in May in Shinjuku.
Shigeaki Kato plays a student studying at an American university, who goes to Italy to take part in a seminar on the Mèdici family - a powerful and influential Florentine family from the 14th to 18th century, who along with the other great signore families of Italy inspired the birth of the Renaissance. While in Italy, Kato’s character forms relationships with four women in succession, including one played by Natsuki Kato.
“To put it bluntly, I play a sex addict," Shigeaki said. "There are quite a few love scenes in there, so I’m pretty excited about that. Plus I’m interested in the arts from the Renaissance period.”
However, Natsuki Kato cautioned reporters: “This is not porn, so don’t just focus on the bedroom scenes!”
“Seminar” will open at The Globe Tokyo in Shinjuku from May 17 to June 3, and at the Umeda Arts Theater in Osaka from June 9 to 14.© Japan Today
