A good news for Nogizaka46 fans because they are going to do another stage play about Joshiraku. Joshiraku is originally a manga written by Kumeta Kouji and illustrated by Yasu. The manga itself tells the story about 5 female rakugo performer. This manga has insipired a 12 episode TV anime aired in 2012. Last year in June, Nogizaka46 also performs a Joshiraku stage play. So, this isn’t the first time they do so.
The new stage play will run from May 12 to May 22, 2016 at Shibuya’s AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo. The cast line up is as follow :
Nakada Kana, Saitou Chiharu, and Shinuchi Mai as Anrakutei Kukuru

Matsumuri Sayuri, Sakurai Reika, and Wakatsuki Yumi as Bouhatei Tetora
Suzuki Ayane, Watanabe Miria, and Kitano Hinako as Haroukitei Kigurumi
Unfortunately, not every member of Nogizaka46 will present on the play. And more unfortunately, this play is only available in Tokyo, Japan. But at least once in a while, Nogizaka46 can offer a different kind of entertainment towards its audience.
