Someone has to post this. It has exploded in the Japanese media since March 30, I mean in the theatre world in Japan. They met each other in the 2005 production of Never Say Goodbye but didn't start dating until last May. It's reported that Youka visited Florida this January and exchanged engagement rings with Frank. Of course I wish them all the happiness in the world, but I have to say I'm in shock!
And no, this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

The critics have it in for this marriage. Am I right, Roxy? I SAID amiright, Roxy?

Is she a girl or a boy? I thought all the girls in that troupe are really boys? Or is it the other way around?

Other way around, though there is a Tokyo theatre company where all the boys play girls.

I'm still confused by the shock in the first person's post.

Word is the wedding will be poorly attended and widely disliked, save for a few who find it incredibly touching and those who don't speak English and have no idea what's actually going on.
