[NEWS] Ikuta Erika will Appear in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet 1812” Musical

It has been announced in Nogizaka46 official site that she will take part in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet 1812” musical. She also stated in her blog that she will play role as Natasha.

This musical is a sung-through musical adaptation of a 70-page segment from Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace written by composer/lyricist Dave Malloy and directed by Rachel Chavkin. The musical received positive reviews, particularly for Phillipa Soo, Denée Benton, and Josh Groban’s leading performances, as well as for the production’s score, direction, and scenic design. The show was nominated for 12 awards—the highest number of nominations in the 2016–2017 season—for the 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical for Benton, Best Actor in a Musical for Groban, Best Featured Actor in a Musical for Lucas Steele, and Best Direction of a Musical for Chavkin. It won two awards: Best Scenic Design for Mimi Lien and Best Lighting Design in a Musical for Bradley King (lighting designer). (Wikipedia)

The musical will be a premiere in Japan and will start to show on January, 2019.

“Mozart” is about to get produced and will be shown soon, and now this. It is another amazing opportunity for her to have a leading role in such a well-known musical.

P.S
She mentioned that she watched “The Greatest Showman” lately. I hope she will take part if the Japanese musical for The Greatest Showman is decided.
