15-05-2019 12:00:00 16-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Ashita No Ma-Joe: Rocky Macbeth | 7:30 pm Yu Murai, founder of the Theater Company Kaimaku Pennant Race, cleverly retells Macbeth through the 1960s mega-hit manga Ashita no Joe, providing insight into how the tale of one young man's rise from delinquent to professional boxer parallels that of the Scottish king. Littered with reimaginings of famous scenes from both works, this production is sure to titillate Shakespeare and manga lovers alike. Murai uses the mythos surrounding the boxer Joe to create a nonsensical theatrical production that cheekily smashes together two worlds fraught with angst and ambition. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359084 Japan Society Japan Society
