Management agency Box Corporation is currently in its 30th year, and it is planning and producing its first stage play as a special project before the year is up. The company will put on a production of playwright Ohashi Yasuhiko’s award-winning 1988 play, “Godzilla.” Actor Kato Keisuke (22) and Idoling!!! member Tonooka Erika (20) have been chosen as co-stars.
Kato will play the iconic monster Godzilla, while Tonooka will play a young girl who falls in love with him. It appears that Kato will not be wearing a Godzilla costume for the part.
The supporting casts (some roles have been double-cast) include Ueno Natsuhi, Ito Yuna (not to be confused with the singer), Nagano Serina, Ito Kana, Kuriki Ai, Tozuka Junki, Nanba Shohei, Sakaguchi Ryo, and Deleanu Satoshi.
