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, using only a fan and a hand towel for props, as he entertains the audience with the 400-year-old Japanese tradition of comic storytelling.
Recently the emcee of the G20 in Osaka, Katsura Sunshine brings Rakugo to Times Square and is the only Western Rakugo Master in the world and the star of NHK Worldwide. Sunshine is the perfect performer to bridge the gap between the East and the West, in a hilarious style.
