Musical stars same main cast as anime, runs in September
The official website for the stage musical of Higasa Akai‘s The Royal Tutor (Ōshitsu Kyōshi Heine or Königliche Familie Lehrer) manga revealed a new cast member and visual for the musical on July 1. The visual recreates a color illustration from the manga’s first compiled book volume.
The musical has cast Nobuo Kyo to play Victor von Grannzreich, a key character in the story. He is the king of Grannzreich, the father of the four princes, and the one who invited Heine Wittgenstein as a tutor.
The musical will run at Tokyo’s Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi from September 7 to September 10, and in Osaka’s Morinomiya Piloti Hall from September 16 to September 18. Kōtarō Yoshitani is directing the musical.
The main cast of the anime (Yūya Asato, Yūto Adachi, Keisuke Ueda, Daisuke Hirose, Shouta Aoi, shown left to right in image above) will return as the main cast members for the musical. A visual for the play duplicates a similar visual for the anime:
