I don't know how I feel about this musical.

But I think it's natural for a GREAT works to be remade or being adapted into another format.

Of course they better make it a good one -_-!

Since it's Musical, would they also sing "Natsu no Ousama"?
and what it means by triple cast concept? each performance will be played by different natsuo or 3 of the natsuo cast will switch their part in one performance? I'm confused *-*
