LITTLE TOKYO : Kabuki to Play Last U.S. Shows Until '96

September 12, 1993

The Grand Kabuki of Japan returns to the Japan America Theatre this week for seven performances that mark the troupe's last West Coast visit for an indefinite period.

Domestic demands in Japan leave the Grand Kabuki little time to tour outside the country, according to Japan America Theatre officials. The only other U.S. visit planned by the troupe is an appearance at the Olympic Arts Festival in Atlanta in 1996.

The Grand Kabuki's performances Thursday through Sept. 19 at the Japan America Theatre, 244 S. San Pedro St., are part of the theater's 10th anniversary celebration. A performance by the Grand Kabuki of Japan opened the theater in April, 1983.
