Giovanna - SKU the Musical (redux)
I dreamt I was walking out of the doctor's office and decided randomly to buy an anime magazine. (Haven't bought one of those in years.) I'm on my way home and flipping through it (funny how there was no dream conflict in my lazily reading while I was driving) and near the back was a bigass two page spread advert for the SKU musical. The picture was kinda a paintbrush stylized picture of Touga holding out a sword so that he's in the bottom left and the sword covers both pages. There's a pan of his second duel like this but I don't have it in photobucket, so no example for you! Now, this wasn't the Japanese musical, or anything remotely like it; it was a Broadway production. Apparently a rather expensive one because there were little pictures of grossly extravagant sets and the costumes were insane. I dunno how I knew this since it didn't say it, but Akio's armbands were actual solid gold, as were all the other gold accents in the costumes. Also they'd somehow managed to rig the theater with a domed ceiling and the set cut into the audience in the middle because there was a functioning projector set into the floor that came up for the right scenes. (A lot of planetariums are built with receding projectors.) In another part of the stage was a functioning seitokai/BRS elevator. My first thought though was that the actors were genetically engineered for this or something, because there was no 'oh wow that looks like him', they looked exactly like the characters.
I flipped the page and to go with the musical they were releasing a new game on the PS3, it was more like a classic Japanese RPG than a dating sim, and I distinctly recall a picture of Utena staring down into her reflection on a lake, and another of Saionji as a playable character in 3rd person view. I flipped back to the musical and saw it was going to be a touring production after a few months in NY, and its first stop was Miami. The rest of my dream was me flipping out on the phone trying to figure out if I could afford to drag Yasha and as many IRG members as possible over to NY to see it or if we'd have to wait for it to come here.
