I’ve got even more tickets to give away, this time for a new production opening at Imagination Stage next weekend. Anime Momotaro, running from January 30 through March 10, reinterprets a famous Japanese folktale that teaches powerful lessons about inner strength and the ability to stand up against bullying.
Here’s the full description from the website:
An old couple in ancient Japan long for a child. They have their wish granted when a huge peach floats down the river and breaks open to reveal a baby boy. They name him Momotaro, and he grows up to be the strongest young man in all of Japan. But Momotaro’s village has a tiny problem…GIANT OGRES! Ogres have been bullying the villagers for years, and Momotaro decides he must make a stand. With the help of friends-the dog Inu, the monkey Saru, and the bird Kiji-Momotaro meets his foes face-to-face. Performed in the style of popular anime cartoons with traditional Japanese influences, this action-packed staging of Japan’s most famous folktale teaches powerful lessons about inner strength and how creativity, kindness, and cooperation win out over brute force.
