This is what I do to ease the pain of not seeing this show until a week after shonichi  
Things I learned about Berubara from Sanspo:

The first extra bit that I hadn't already read on Sponichi was that Marise gives Andre a ribbon as a sign of their promise to each other. This is significant later.

The only scene that the top combi have together is their reunion, in which Andre cannot accept Marise's love. God, it's worse than Ryoma-den. :\

But at least Marise does get the epilogue, which is what I was after when I asked Marie-chan about the ending. Marronglace tells Marise the news and hands her the ribbon that Andre had given her to keep all those years ago. Sad. :( Then Tani!Andre sings the final song in a white uniform and ascends the "stairway to heaven" (*tries to stifle giggles*)... alone. Yeah. I had pegged this as a show where Oscar wouldn't get as much stage time, because they'd cast her with such young'uns... But still. Making Andre the center of the Bastille scene probably takes the cake, I guess.

This writer equates the country accents to Kouchi-ben. I am amused. I wonder how many different dialect comparisons we'll get before the run is over.

I'll pass on commenting on the photos. There aren't enough of them and none from the revue anyway.

Things I learned about Berubara from Fukuda-san:

In the prologue, Alice-chan wears a big, poofy lavender dress. It was very moving (Fukuda-san loves poofy dresses <3). Other than that, she didn't have much to say about the pub or Alice-chan as a townsperson. Mostly Fukuda-san is just obsessed with Tani and Ume-chan's accents. XDDD Apparently they were so funny/strange that she and other people in the audience thought perhaps the two of them had messed up their lines. Basically she says she doesn't see why the accents were necessary. :P (She refers to them as "Tosa-ben", which follows what Marie-chan said about Ryouma and Shintarou.)

Then Fukuda-san goes into a long apology for giving me the wrong idea about a scene involving Alice-chan in the revue which I had already figured out was wrong anyway... And then she gives a long description of Alice-chan's wig for New York, which is new because she wasn't in that scene before. I get that it's "semi-long" and somewhat wavy, but I'm not sure if it's in a ponytail or what exactly it is that makes the top a little higher than the rest. She also failed to mention the color. Bad Fukuda-san. X3

Lastly, the etoile. Again, I'm not sure if "ちょっとウルッときちゃいました" is a reflection on Alice-chan's singing or Fukuda-san's reaction to it. But she was moved and clapped as hard as she could. Then she says," I want to write so much more but it'll get too long, so let's talk about it the next time we meet."

I wish we were doing kangeki on the same day at least once. :(

I...can't figure out this show. It sounds like even Ume-chan doesn't have much stage time...I mean, how much can just Tani do alone? Doesn't she need to interact with some other characters?

But if nothing else, I suppose we can join in the making fun of dialects XD I'm considering just turning this entire show into a drinking game when I watch it.

Which scene is this referring to? Did we ever figure out who Micchan's partner in Arabia is?

I get the feeling that the play is chopped up into so many little scenes that cumulatively Tani gets the most stage time. Obviously she's not doing it alone; she can't be onstage all the time, that would just be impossible. Anyway, "the top combi only get one scene together" is not the same as "Ume-chan gets no stage time"... At least I assume so...

Fukuda-san watched the stage report, heard Alice-chan say "tango" and got into her head that that meant the Spanish number. I thought "tango" meant there would be a new/altered number. Of course actually Alice-chan was talking about the bit in Paris with tango-y music, and I realized pretty quickly that if she was in Spain on top of everything else Alice-chan would die of exhaustion. So yeah. I didn't explain it in the post because it wasn't worth the trouble of explaining. ^^;;

Today's challenge: buy new Kageki and Phoenix Wright program, and resist or not resist the temptation to peek inside the Berubara program. (I'm waiting to buy it until I go up on Saturday; Nagoya QR is having a lottery if you buy over 3000 yen worth of merchandise... ;)

*grumble* There doesn't seem much of an Oscar/Andre story, and Ume and Tani barely get any scenes together...exactly what is the point of this BeruBara, Ueda-sensei? :P

Ha, I remember resisting that temptation. My best success was going several months without looking at anything MiiMai related XD.

Thank you, Julie. Now I have the song stuck in my head ^^;;;;

I can't wait to hear your own impressions of the show <3

Hey, the article says 天国の階段. I'm not just pulling this out of thin air, you know. :P
