Previous stage play adaptation was postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic
You can't keep a good salesman down, and although last year's previous attempt to produce a stage play adaptation based on Fujiko A. Fujio's dark comedy / psychological thriller manga, The Laughing Salesman, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the original crew and a mostly new cast are heading to the stage in Tokyo for a new production in the Summer of 2021.
The Laughing Salesman THE STAGE is directed by Kensaku Kobayashi, written by Yusuke Shiratori (Stokes/Park), and stars actor Ryuji Sato in the titular role as Moguro Fukuzo. The play also stars Shouta Matsuda, Hiroki Ishibashi, Koichiro Tomioka, Ikuko Sawada, Yoshihiro Minami, Masaki Ikemura, Satoshi Fujimura, Ryota Kakegawa, Sayaka Itō, and Mayu Tsuyuzume.
The Laughing Salesman THE STAGE is scheduled to run from March 26 - April 11, 2021, at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel Stellar Ball venue in Tokyo, Japan. Tickets to the show cost 8500 yen ($81.90 US) including tax.
