Actress Masami Nagasawa (29) is making her stage musical debut this week by starring in Suzuki Matsuo’s production of the world-famous musical “Cabaret”. Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it is based in nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, and revolves around young American writer Cliff Bradshaw and his relationship with 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles (source here). Nagasawa’s performance as the songstress Sally gained many positive feedback from people who watched the promotion coverage on TV, and many of them tweeted and praised her singing and dancing ability, plus her long legs which make her looks sexy in a cabaret costume.
The musical Cabaret also stars Teppei Koike as Cliff, Kazushige Komatsu, Seminosuke Murasugi, Kami Hiraiwa, and Natsuko Akiyama. Although this is her first musical, Nagasawa said that she’s feeling excited and hope her feeling reaches the audience. While Koike who acts as her lover jokingly commented, “There are some intimate scenes, so I hope Nagasawa-san’s fans won’t kill me.”
Cabaret is scheduled to be staged in Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Miyagi, Aichi and Fukuoka starts from January 11th to February 26th.
