New World Stages
The only living Non-Japanese Master
of the very Japanese art of RAKUGO Comic Storytelling!
New World Stages – 340 West 50th Street, New York NY 10019
With a minimal set, Katsura Sunshine’s Rakugo features a lone storyteller dressed in a kimono, kneeling on a cushion, and using only a fan and a hand towel for props, as he entertains the audience with a comic monologue followed by traditional story-telling.
Recently the emcee of the G20 in Osaka, Katsura Sunshine, often called the “King of Kimono Comedy,” has brought the tradition of Rakugo to Times Square! Rakugo is the 400-year-old Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling.
A star of NHK Worldwide, he is charming, universally funny and yet so very Japanese, the perfect performer to bridge the gap between the East and the West, in hilarious fashion.
Now Playing Thursdays and Saturdays at 8pm!
