Monday Movies: Dream Girls
June 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This fascinating documentary, produced for the BBC, opens a door into the spectacular world of the Takarazuka Revue, a highly successful musical theater company in Japan. Thousands of girls apply to the male-run Takarazuka Music School each year. The accepted few endure years of a highly disciplined and reclusive existence before they can join the Revue, choosing male or female roles.
Dream Girls offers a compelling insight into gender and sexual identity and the contradictions experienced by Japanese women today.
Japanese snacks are included with the $5 admission.
