Kabuki dance and Japanese sword fighting will take to the stage of Theater for the New City when Ryuji Sawa: The Return plays a limited New York engagement Nov. 6-11.

Actor Ryuji Sawa, known for his work in Japanese film, television and theatre, will bring his latest theatrical piece — incorporating Kabuki dance, Taiko drumming, sword fighting and martial arts — to American audiences.
