ARCANUM - HIROKI UCHI
After finishing “Guys and Dolls”, in which he played the leading role for the first time, Uchi hasn’t had free time yet. At this time he is holding live performance at Creation Theatre and let’s hears Uchi tell about something marvelous to him recently.
Something marvelous to me? It’s “How can A.B.C-Z be so vigorous?” (laugh). Actually when taking photos at the same studio, we met by chance and they’re very energetic. Now, they’re taking part in “Takizawa Kabuki”, preparing for “ABC-Z live performance” in Creation Theatre, and also doing the produce with other groups. They’re holding 3 tasks concurrently, right? To me, performing “Guys and Dolls” and preparing for live performance at the same time have already exceeded 120% of my capacity. I feel as like “How can I do~”. In fact, Tottsu and I are at the same age. A.B.C-Z is really vigorous!
Kabuki: Japanese classical drama
Like I said a moment ago, at this time, in the interval of “Guys and Dolls”, I have arranged the time to prepare the live performance with Question?. When butai is over, the next day will be the first day of live performance. Because we don’t have time to make new sets, we decide to use the set of butai. But how will we do? We are going to parody the butai. My lover Sara will be played by Yodogawa, and Nathan-used to be played by Nisshiki-san- will be Akun. Fujiie is decided to wear women clothes and Ishigaki will play a sham Sky. So, only Fujiie hasn’t been cast for a role yet. I heard A.B.C-Z said they would wear Hakama and play Kokyu in kabuki. So they will show up cool (laugh). About “Guys and Dolls”, I think we will start from the part “I quit gambling and live happily with Yodogawa”. We will make that idea become comical, and I only think of thus far (laugh). When the members of Question? watched the butai, they also expressed the feeling about the cast. Akun and Yodi said “Just as I thought” whereas Fujiie gave the reaction “Ehh, how can it be?” (laugh). There’s an idea about “Make Akun dance earnestly”, but in this period the plan is being materialized.

I don’t think Question? and I can make a comical performance. Whereas, A.B.C-Z decided to do something really cool such as acrobats. But we’re also a band, and due to it we don’t have to worry too much (laugh). We will warm up the theatre, then A.B.C-Z will continue keeping the atmosphere there. When this magazine is released, our live performance will be almost finished and live performance of A.B.C-Z will succeed. Everyone, please support!
