“Ao no Ran” is the latest in the popular Geki×Cine series. To cut a long story short, Geki×Cine is a filmed stage production, but one done so meticulously that not a single moment of relevance or emotion is lost in the translating process.

What you see in this movie is what you would have seen if you had premium front-seat tickets to the “Ao no Ran” stage production — a notoriously difficult feat to pull off, since “Ao no Ran” is performed by Gekidan Shinkansen, one of Japan’s most treasured theater groups. Tickets for these shows sell out in a matter of hours — or even less —but thanks to Geki×Cine, the stage experience can be savored in the movie theater.
