"Theaterclip" also posted a video clip of the press conference on their YouTube Channel:
I'm really looking forward to this production, especially since I have seen the original French version of the musical in Paris, back in 2012.
I'm sure the Japanese version will be just as amazing as the French one and I'm convinced that Dai-chan will be a wonderful Camille Desmoulins.
