Johnny’s dancer Yara Tomoyuki gets lead in musical


Nylon 2012.05 issue

One of the best dancers at Johnny’s will get his first musical lead 16 years after joining the agency, reports Mainichi Shimbun.

29-year-old Yara Tomoyuki joined Johnny’s when he was 13, and has been a member of several groups in his Johnny’s Jr. years including Musical Academy. More recently, he has choreographed concerts for KinKi Kids, Arashi, and Kanjani8. It has been a long wait for the talent but now he has the lead in the musical “道化の瞳 (Douke no Hitomi)“.

“My dream has come true. 4 or 5 years ago, after I had left the group and started solo work, I became more ambitious. I’m really grateful to be able to be a part of something like this now,” he said.

The musical is separated into two parts. The first is about Kenichi (played by Tomoyuki), who has leukemia, and the people he gets to know in the hospital including his blind mother, and the two doctors in the hospital. The second part is a stage performance of a story Kenichi wrote, about a shoe shiner (Tomoyuki) and a group of clowns.

“道化の瞳 (Douke no Hitomi)” will be performed in Tokyo’s Theatre Creation from April 10 to 24

This guy is the main reason why I loved Butoukan. I've been wondering for years why this guy never got a proper debut, but it looks like he's doing just fine without debuting.

WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! OMG, I can't even... *_________*

I'm so happy right now! :D
Yaracchi, omedetou!!!!

He SO deserves this. I've watched him struggling for a while now. Obviously Johnny isn't gonna give him a debut and it seems that JE artists aren't exactly popular with other productions. It must have been tough on him. All the more I am overjoyed to read this.

Weehhh, this seems to be the year for MA. First Machida in a non-JE production, now Yara even getting a lead!

I'm so happy for them. ^_____^

PS: I know the people who I'm addressing won't be reading this, but just for the fun of it: In. Your. Face!!! to all those who keep questioning JE artist dancing abilities. ^_~
