Shock (musical)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Shock (stylized as SHOCK) is a Japanese musical series. The producer of the show is Johnny Kitagawa, head of the talent agency Johnny & Associates. In charge of the production is Koichi Domoto, a member of the Japanese duo KinKi Kids. Starting out in 2000, Shock has been performed annually ever since.[1] As of March 2009, it has been on stage for ten years in a row. Due to the enormous success, in 2010 the number of shows was stocked up. On August 1, 2010, Kitagawa announced that there are plans to bring Shock to the United States as early as 2012.[1]

Shock has been adapted and re-scripted several times since it started out. Name and cast variations never did anything to lessen the popularity of the show. While the basic story is always the same, the character storylines change with the cast. All versions have been performed at the Imperial Garden Theater in Tokyo.

Central story[edit]

A small, unknown group of actors who work together in order to produce their own show. However, in addition to being virtually unknown, they are also rather poor so they have to perform in the small “off-Broadway” theater. One day, they receive the chance to produce a show for the big “on-Broadway” theater.[1]
