Right about now in Japan, the curtain should be going up on the first Soragumi shonichi I haven't been able to go to in over two years.

I know, right. Poor me. *rolls eyes* I mean, conversely that reflects successfully attending four shonichis in a row in that space of time, not to mention a few first performances of other troupes.

It all seems so far away right now, both physically and emotionally.

In my campaign to know as little about For Whom as possible I don't think I ever checked, but sales are as dismal as ever.

That's never what I want for my troupe, even if I'm still dissatisfied with the state of things at present.

Soragumi, faito... *waves little flags*

Here's hoping there are pictures on Asahi by the time I wake up.

I think, sadly, they're making a mistake bringing back these older classic shows. While some fans (ME!) are hugely excited to get a chance to see them, the majority of their fan base has very different taste now than it did 30 or 50 years ago.

I suspect it's partially a pressure valve, though. They just don't have enough time to churn out new material, and can only revive the new hits every couple of years before they wear them out (see the differences in Daigekijou Elisabeth ticket sales between '07 and '09)....

"Don't have enough time to churn out new material" = ain't that the truth. My dim hope is that these new directors doing their Daigekijou debuts will churn up some new and exciting things for us.

And the even newer bunch that they just hired last year! Exciting times. *grin*
