Fodor's Review

Japan's all-female theater troupe was founded in the Osaka suburb of Takarazuka in 1913 and has been going strong ever since. Today it has not one but five companies, one of which has a permanent home in Tokyo at the 2,069-seat Takarazuka Theater. Where else but at the Takarazuka could you see Gone With the Wind, sung in Japanese, with a young woman in a mustache and a frock coat playing Rhett Butler? Same-day tickets are sold at the box office at either 9:30 am or 10 am depending on performances. Advance tickets are available through ticketing agencies and the theater's website. Any remaining tickets are sold at the theater box office.
