18th Century Paris to be Brought to Life at ‘Innocent Rouge’ Manga Musical Showing in Paris and Tokyo
A new musical based on the popular Weekly Young Jump/ Grand Jump manga series Innocent Rouge will be performed at HULIC HALL Tokyo from 29th November ー 10th December and will arrive in Paris, France in February 2020. The script was written by Kensuke Yokouchi and directed by Amon Miyamoto.
The title is the French word for “innocent” (which is also “innocent” in English but just pronounced differently). The manga featured in Weekly Young Jump‘s 9th 2013 issue and made a constant appearance until the 20th issue featured in 2015. Now, the sequel Innocent Rouge is currently being featured in Grand Jump. A total of 884,000 copies have been sold.
The manga presents the story of Charles-Henri Sanson; the Royal Executioner of France during the reign of King Louis XVI in the 18th century, and his younger sister Marie-Joseph Sanson. The artistic presentation of execution and other extreme concepts is what made this manga gain popularity not just in Japan, but all over the world.
This is is the first time that Amon Miyamoto has ever produced a musical based on a manga. The first musical tickets will be released in late May by the musical project sponsors and there is a plan in place that allows members of Innocent’s fanclub to get first dibs on the tickets. Further information on the cast of the musical, the Paris tour and much more will be announced when known on the official website. All we can do is wait in excitement!
