“Revue Starlight -The LIVE-#2 Transition” started From October 13, 2018 at The Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo. In advance, press conference and dress rehearsal were held on October 12th.

“Revue Starlight” is a mix of medias, created through a link between musicals and animes. The origin is the musical, and most of the characters were dubbed by the actual casts from the musical. On September 2017, “Revue Starlight -The LIVE-#1” was held. It was staged again on January the next year. In addition, the main casts formed a group called “Starlight Kukugumi” and released CDs.

The Seisho Music Academy is a traditional musical school with 100 years of a long history. In this school, 9 students from the 99th Graduating Class are making efforts to get the main role, which is called the “Star”.

“Revue Starlight -The LIVE-#2 Transition” has many factors from the anime broadcast from July to September 2018.

In the pre-interview, Karen Aijo played by Momoyo Koyama, Hikari Kagura played by Suzuko Mimori, Maya Tendo played by Maho Tomita, Junna Hoshimi Hinata Sato, Mahiru Tsuyuzaki played by Haruki Iwata, Nana Daiba played by Moeka Koizumi, Claudine Saijo played by Aina Aiba, Futaba Isurugi played by Teru Ikuta and Kaoruko Hanayagi played by Ayasa Ito appeared. Each of them talked about their enthusiasm towards the new musical.

When a question related to connecting the anime to the musical was asked, Mimori said, “There are many people who learned about Starlight after watching the anime, and this musical is based on that anime, so anime fans can also enjoy watching the show. To make them feel that ‘Starlight is so good!’, I hope we can build a bridge between the anime and the musical.”


After the interview, the dress rehearsal was held for the musical part and the live part.

Story:
The 9 who played “Starlight” on the 100th school festival of the Seisho Music Academy were living their school life with a refreshed feeling. They were working hard to become the “Star” for the next year’s school festival. Meanwhile, students from their rival school, the Seiran Arts School came to the Seisho Music Academy through a so-called “exchange program”. However, their purpose was to take away the “Starlight”, so some lost their confidence when they saw the absolute ability of the Seiran Arts School. The battle, which is called the “Revue” starts in order to gain “Starlight”.

One of the special features of the musical is the sword battle scenes. Each student has a weapon such as a sword and an arrow. During the “Reveue”, they fight beautifully and strongly, using their weapon. With great stage works, it’s even more impressive than #1.

Another feature is the synchronization of casts and characters as the musical and anime are connected. The feelings of characters are expressed delicately. The power of expression has increased from #1 as well. Casts are growing with the characters.

In the live part, it became allowed to use the penlights at the audience seats, increasing the sense of unity. In addition to the performance of the 9, new casts and ensemble casts were added. 8 songs were performed including the theme song, “99 ILLUSION!”, released on October 10th.

Through both the musical and live parts, the passion of each cast fulfilled the stage. The musical was full of the Stage Girls’ dreams. On the final day on October 21st, it will be broadcast live at the movie theaters all over Japan. Even for those who missed seeing #1 or watching the anime, the musical will definitely be satisfying, so check it out!
