Southwark Playhouse in London has released a trailer for its Christmas show, a stage production of Stan Sakai's long-running historical fantasy Usagi Yojimbo.
Adapted by Stewart Melton for ages 7 and up, the play opened Nov. 28 to positive reviews, with particular attention given to its production design and original live music (you get a little taste of both in the trailer). It closes Jan. 4.
While Usagi Yojimbo may not be what comes to mind when you think "Christmas show," in previous years Southwark Playhouse has staged Howl's Moving Castle and Anansi: An African Fairy Tale for the holidays. So, more kids' fare than Christmas fare.
