It was everything that I’d hoped for. The kids were cute, the english teacher was great and had a powerful voice, the young lovers were endearing and Ken Watanabe was amazing. I left still humming “shall we dance, one two three” and that is high praise from me. I was a bit disappointed we didn’t get to see naoko mori, but her second placement as Lady was very good. And I am happy that i saw Watanabe, who had visible fun on stage and transferred that enthusiasm seamlessly into his part.
