Well, this looks interesting since I’ve never seen Ueda play as a man in a relationship, and it’s more interesting that ex-AKB48 center Maeda Atsuko will be his lover.
It was announced that KAT-TUN‘s Ueda Tatsuya will star in the stage play, “Aoi Hitomi“, to be staged this November. The said play will be written and directed by Iwamatsu Ryo that would depict the suffering of veterans in their family and community after the war. Joining Ueda is Kabuki actor Nakamura Shido II, who will play as a returning soldier, and older brother to Michiru (Maeda) while Ueda will play as Michiru’s lover.
Nakamura is expecting some “chemical reaction” since it’s the first time that he’ll be working with a popular male idol and former ace of a national girl idol group. It’s also the first time for Ueda and Maeda to work together.
“Aoi Hitomi” will run from Nov 1st to 26th at Bunkamura Theater Cocoon.
