Schadenfreude -- aka not-Soragumi news >:D  
Okay, fine. I admit. I'm a news whore.

On the days that Ahi is Rudolph, Morie will be Elmer and Mirio will be Stephan.

On the days that Morie is Rudolph, Ahi will be Elmer and Mirio will be Stephan.

On the days that Mirio is Rudolph, Ahi will be Elmer and Morie will be Stephan.

Sometimes these changes will take place twice in one day, i.e. Mirio will be Rudolph in the morning and Ahi will be Rudolph in the afternoon.

*edits* Also of note, Ahi as Rudolph gets Mura shonichi, raku, and Tokyo shonichi. Morie gets Tokyo raku.

Those poor girls. Also, I predict a lot of mishaps will come of this. ^^;;;

Good gracious. On the plus side, Ahi is never Stephan and Mirio is never Elmer, so they have fewer things to keep in mind... Poor Morie...

...Are they TRYING to kill them?

Gyah, don't scare me with opening sentences like that. I thought something bad had happened. :P

Thank you for typing it out in English while I'm working though. *scurries back to work*

I also counted the number of performances... looks like they each get 15 in each theater, though it seems like Mirio has 14 in Tokyo... but then again, my counting could be bad.

I'm glad that Ahi seems to be getting some preferential treatment.

Is Elmer a bigger role than Stephan? I seem to remember Elmer, but not Stephan so much.

Elmer is Revolutionary #1, Stephan is #2 and Jura is #3. They all move together and get lines in the same scenes, it's just that Elmer gets a tiny bit more.

This totally looks like one of those logic puzzles they'd make us do in school. The ones where you'd have to make the chart up and then figure out who has what role on what day using the facts they give you ^.^

AHAHAHA oh my god you are so right. XDDDDD

...That really does sound like a disaster waiting to happen ^^;; switching roles throughout the day just sounds awful and confusing for those involved...

It seems that Morie is the only one who is playing all three roles, but still...in the immortal words of Charlie Brown, good grief!

Was there really no way that they could have done this a week at a time or something? -_-; I'm with everyone else who is predicting mishaps I feel like a bad person for looking forward to hearing about stories of mixed up lines and choreography ^^;;;

Can I get some "I told you so" points for predicting that the role switch would be with the revolutionaries? XD

Of course, only two out of the three revolutionaries are covered. There's still Jura, and it'll be interesting to see who that goes to. (I'm betting that Sonoka will get Zeps, for the record).

... WHAT.

My head hurts just thinking about all of that. It's such a ridiculous way to do things. Though, hopefully they can cover for each other if something does go wrong?

Let's all stare at the madness within the pretty color-coded scheme on the website. Really, what the heck is Hankyu thinking? This is insane!

Am I too bad if I say I look forward to this?

Besides all the not-that-positive points about this... I'm totally excited to see each one of them in these roles. <3

Y'know, I've seen this in regular theatre. A friend of mine is a swing and understudies two of the main leads in a major show, as well as his minor character in the chorus. That's to say nothing of some people who swing for 8 characters in other shows :) I'm sure they'll be fine.

Whoever made this plan must be a superbrain! A logistic superbrain!
I really wonder what will become of the DVD...@_@
