The highly anticipated stage play adaptation of Kemuri Karakara's fantasy action manga Rengoku ni Warau/Laughing in Purgatory, a prequel story to the author's Donten ni Warau/Laughing Under the Clouds series, finally started its 16-day run at Sunshine Theater in Tokyo last Thursday, August 24.
Prior to its opening, a press preview of the dress rehearsal was made available to Japanese media. 2.5 News, a website covers the news about stage play adaptations of Japanese manga/anime/game franchise, has posted a five-minute video report of the rehearsal and a nine-minute on-the-spot interview clip with the cast on its official YouTube channel.
After the performances in Tokyo, the play will be also performed at Morinomiya Piloti Hall in Osaka on September 9 and 10. It is confirmed that a DVD including the last show on September 10 will be released from Toei Video on February 7, 2018.
