CLAMP’s popular “xxxHOLiC” series will be adapted for the stage this Autumn 2021! Titled “Engeki-cho I-tan xxxHOLiC” (roughly “New Theatrical-style xxxHOLIC”), the stage play will feature an all-male cast including Motohiro Ohta and Shogo Sakamoto — who were both in the “Prince of Tennis” and the “Touken Ranbu” musicals, as “Yuko Ichihara” and “Kimihiro Watanuki” respectively.
“XxxHOLiC” follows the misadventures of the schoolboy Kimihiro Watanuki who is cursed with the ability to see spirits. He stumbles upon a shop run by the mysterious Yuko Ichihara, who removes his curse in exchange for him becoming her personal cook and housekeeper. As Kimihiro becomes more involved in Yuko’s shop, he uncovers unsettling truths that cross time and space.
