- Located at Used (Osaka) station, near Chaya-machi. It's next to Starbucks,
various musical is seen at this theater, you should visit.
I went to see Takarazuka revue, you should visit ticket center for the day's ticket. 梅田芸術劇場芸術劇場メインホールは、一階部分のシアターです。運が良ければ、その日のチケットをそこにあるチケットセンターで買えます。演目はその周囲に宣伝が沢山あります。時間の余裕のある方にオススメのスポットです。Written February 21, 2019
- My family and I enjoyed the musical so much, we kept singing the theme song "gotta gotta!" all the way back to our home country!
Kudos to the five actors and also to their kind manager who went out of his way to walk us to the don quijote shop for our cruise. Your hospitality is greatly appreciated, sir! We'll come back with more friends!Written January 28, 2020
- The Hall and the surrounding park had turned to a popular spot for local and tourists. It was really nice to stroll around. There were eateries and shops available for visitors. Pleasant area particularly during sunny days. Recommended.Written December 7, 2019
- It's one of Japan's traditional forms of theatre. The attraction: Audiences know the stories but come to see how well the actors portray the characters and express their emotions.
While I wasn't able to see a performance, I was kindly invited by the manager to a tour and had the good fortune to meet a living treasure Noh drum player who was about to give a private lesson. He kindly showed me how to hold and hit a drum, giving me an appreciation of doing the right thing in the right way - no small achievement especially when the woman waiting to meet the master told me she had been taking lessons for 20 years.
My good fortune continued when a Noh actress showed us six masks (“man or woman? How old?” – I scored only two out of six) and demonstrated how holding them at different angles conveyed different emotions and feelings e.g. up = happy, down = sad.
That means when you walk on stage with a mask on – which I did, after being shown how to stand and walk (and bowing to/thanking the mask before and after) – you have to look at the poles at the four corners of the stage to judge where you are on the stage, because unless you are trying to look sad you can’t look down or it will convey the wrong emotion.
I also tried on a kimono – orange for hot summer, blue-green for spring.
Now knowing some of the back story, I definitely need to return to sit at the front of the stage for a performance.Written May 24, 2017
- It was well worth the effort and cost to see a performance as costumes and cast were outstanding though of course having a translation device would have made it much more enjoyable. The program was however available in English which helped. Seating is extremely cramped, especially for tall people. A number of restaurants in the immediate vicinity and train access / transportation options were convenient.Written June 14, 2017
- Went there on a random Saturday with random friends , the comics were great , they catered to the diverse audience and it was just nice to have fun humour that’s a good mix of adult jokes and non-adult jokes .Written January 14, 2023
