Mari will star in a 1955 Broadway Musical "DAMN YANKEES~Kutabare! Yankiisu~" from May 25th to June 6th at Aoyama Theater.
"Sanspo informs us that Yaguchi Mari will perform her first broadway show on May 25th next year. Yaguchi who is only about 1.45 meters tall will be acting with a cast of people who average 1.71 meters. She states, “Please watch the big acting performance of tiny Yaguchi!”
“Damn Yankees” was a popular broadway musical in America in 1955 and has won six Tony Awards. It was also turned into a film in 1958. The comedy involving the love, desire and dream of playing baseball has adopted the name “Kutabare! YANKIISU” for the Japanese version the the play. Yaguchi will be playing the role of “Gloria” a comical girl who sings and dance — much like the Yaguchi we all know and love."
AWESOMENESS. Way for more spotlight on precious Mari. <3
