Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, the stage adaptation of the popular manga created by Naoko Takeuchi, played three sold-out performances March 29 and 30 at the PlayStation Theatre. The musical, performed in Japanese with English supertitles, originally premiered in August 2018 in Tokyo.
According to press notes, "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" The Super Live marks the first time a 2.5D Musical will be on an American stage. 2.5D Musicals, which began around 2000, are based on popular contemporary Japanese culture: manga comics, anime and video games. Manga and animation are in 2D, and live theatre is in 3D. Therefore, they call performances based on manga and animations 2.5D. A theatre has been built in Japan to house this popular new form of entertainment."
