Zorro!!! (And Nishiki-e of the Wind ;)  
For the second time in as many days:

Hahahahaha!!!

Okay, I just laughed at "The Five Robbers on the Wings of the Wind". After that I'm just SOLD. On the revue AND the play. <333333

But come on, Hankyuu!! You call that a summary?! I hope the program offers something more substantial. :\

(Oh, and Mika's 夜の稲妻 = "Light in the Night". SERIOUSLY, TRANSLATORS, SERIOUSLY?!?!)

Anyway, did everyone else notice that Yukigumi is once again doing a less-than-40-minute revue?

I'm starting to seriously think that they sacked their old English translator. The translated summary for My Dear New Orleans was pretty awful.

(Have the new programs been including full-page English summaries and cast like the old summary chirashi?)

Yeah, since the start of 2009 the new programs have had shiny photo covers and English summaries. :)

(I just wish someone would have told Ueda.K-sensei that Joy is a girl's name. >____< It's not a misspelling; Touko says in the play "my mother gave me a name that means 幸せ".)

Alas, no.

On the other hand, the opening number is EVERYTHING A PERSON COULD WISH FOR, and the bit right after it is MORE.

...Does anyone involved in the translation process over there *actually* speak English? I've done some pretty awkward translating before, but 'multi-coloured woodblock prints of the wind' is something special.
Do they think that us Yukigumi fans can't sit through a longer revue? Like 'forget all this dancing around and give me some meaty dialog!'

You have an otokoyaku dance to Soran (or so I assume from the digest). What more could you want ^_~

I think it depends on how good the revue is. My favorite revue EVER is a shorter one, "Show Stopper". A lot of revues have two or three numbers that are just blatantly repeated from earlier revues. Maybe they're trying to eliminate that, and give us something shorter, but more together and not repeated?
