Ex-Johnny’s Jr Taiyo Ayukawa to star in stage show
Former Johnny’s Jr Taiyo Ayukawa (20) will star in a new stage show this May.
Things had been quiet since his other Ya-Ya-Yah members Kota Yabu (21) and Hikaru Yaotome (20) had joined Hey! Say! JUMP, but now the former Johnny’s Jr talent has been named in the cast of “Tumbling vol.2”, which is a stage show based on the popular TV drama series from 2010.
Ayukawa had made his return to the Japanese entertainment industry this year after he was credited as a newcomer actor in actress Yukie Nakama’s special 2011 New Year’s show “仲間由紀恵の蒼い地球5 (Nakama Yukie no Aoi Chikyu 5, Yukie Nakama’s Blue Earth 5)”.
“Tumbling vol.2” will have shows in Tokyo’s Akasaka ACT Theater from May 18 – 22. Tickets cost 7800 yen and will go on sale from March 12.
