"Rainbow Parakeet" is a criminal action Manga featuring a unique character: the parakeet is a genius actor
whose specialty is mimicry, but he is also a thief. He accepts any role as a mimic, and performs it very well
on the condition that the theater and the company overlook his stealing from the audience. A woman detective
Senri Mariko follows him around in an attempt to arrest him, although she loves him. Then, Tamasaburo, a
dog capable of performing as wonderfully as Rainbow Parakeet, joins the company.
The stage play is directed by Kaori Miura (Dance with Devils) on a script by Masafumi Hata (Prison School
musical, Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record stage play). It is scheduled to be performed
at AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo seven times from October 4 to 9, 2018. General sale of the 7, 800 yen tickets will
