I will be playing the role of Suzuko’s childhood friend and best friend Taiko. From the moment I received the audition, I was terrified and unfounded in my confidence, and I wanted to be involved in this production! Taiko is the exact opposite of Suzuko and has a shy personality, but she is actually a very strong and strong woman. In addition, there is also the background that the home environment is a little complicated. I want to powerfully depict the strong women who have survived the postwar period. Please look forward to it.

I am even more excited and excited to be able to welcome new people with unique personalities.
Suzuko’s childhood friend, Sawako Fujima, who is Taiko, approached me thinking that she would be able to express the core strength that lies within her quietness. As the daughter of a geisha, I have high expectations for the Japanese dance scene.
Around the end of the Taisho era, Suzuko Hanada, the poster girl of a small sento in downtown Osaka, is an innocent girl who loves to sing and dance. After graduating from elementary school, Suzuko began to think, “I want to make everyone smile with my singing and dancing,” and joined a new opera company in Dotonbori. Suzuko, who has been desperately practicing, will grow and stand out with her outstanding singing ability.
In 1938, Suzuko moved to Tokyo. There, he meets a popular composer, and his destiny changes greatly. Under the guidance of a composer, Suzuko became a popular singer known as the Queen of Swing.
However, when the war began, Suzuko’s situation changed completely. The song that Suzuko was singing became “enemy music”, and Suzuko’s singing and dancing on stage were strictly restricted. Furthermore, Suzuko’s younger brother goes to war. Around that time, Suzuko’s mother also died of illness.
A young man appears in front of Suzuko, who is suffering from a series of misfortunes. The two fall in love and eventually vow to marry. However, the young man’s family strongly opposes it, and the marriage does not materialize. Eventually, the war ended, and Suzuko became pregnant with a young man’s child. However, young people fall ill. The days we couldn’t see each other continued, and it was the young man’s obituary that reached Suzuko, who was pregnant. Parting without being able to meet death and not being able to get married. A few days later, Suzuko gave birth to a daughter by herself.
Suzuko sings on stage while raising her daughter alone. In the midst of this, “Tokyo Boogie Woogie” was born. Suzuko’s true value is bright, unadorned, and sings with her whole body. The song resounds in Japan, which was wounded after the war. With Suzuko’s singing voice, people all over Japan were smiling and singing and dancing. Suzuko came to be called the “Boogie Queen” and ran up the stairs to become a big star singer.
