They've found new Japanese backers. Most of the current cast and creative team will stay aboard.

On the bright side, it confirms my long-held feeling that Japan (and the Asian market in general, including but not limited to China and South Korea) are starting to be a new breeding ground for live entertainment.

One Broadway producer, Chunsoo Shin, is pretty big in that market. Over here, his choices haven't been so great (The Story of My Life, the 2012 J.C. Superstar, Chaplin, and the most recent Jekyll and Hyde), but back home, he's the Shuberts and Nederlanders rolled into one. Keep an eye on him. I think we'll see big things soon.
