Two Katos to star in sex addict stage drama

12 Comments

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.

Sex addicition is not a great thing???? How many of us here would love not to have such a great thing bother us every day or so? These Kato ladies are cute!

Four relationships in quick succession is not sex addiction, it's just healthy normal behaviour. Paying a possibly HIV infected stranger for sex on a rickety camp bed in a tiny room, separated by flimsy curtains from the other patrons - that's symptomatic of addiction.

Sounds like it comes from personal experience?

Natsuki Kato is wonderful. Some interviews with her are great. She is the least accessible woman in all of Japan.

“This is not porn, so don’t just focus on the bedroom scenes!”. Cue JT headline "Two Katos to star in sex addict stage drama". Looks like your appeal fell on deaf ears.
