Directed by Nishikiori Kazukiyo (47) and Starred by Uchi Hiroki (26),『Musical “Duet”』(Tokyo・Hibiya Theatre Crea from Sep 28th to Oct 10th) held a public rehearsal on Sep 22nd.
In this Neil Simon comedy, receiving directions from senpai Nishikiori Kazukiyo, Uchi said, “With his heart and soul, ‘Don’t worry, the higher the hurdle, the better it is to go through it’ that’s what Nishiki-san told me” “After hearing his words I felt calmed and looking forward to this play”. Nishikiori added, “The growth of this boy keeps amazing me” “There’s a lot of skills this boy has that I don’t”.
The atmosphere of the rehearsal was really bright. While Nishikiori was giving instructions, Uchi said “I think I’ve come this far because I want people who support me to have a great time while watching this play, since I’m in it most of the time” and Nishikiori added “This also a great play for people who don’t like me since I don’t appear in the cast at all”, jokingly.
