Death Note is getting a brand new musical, and it will feature a brand new cast! This new run will debut in January 2020, and now, the staff have revealed the cast in costume. The cast includes:

Shouma Kai as Light Yagami

Fuu Takahashi as L

Ryouta Murai as Light Yagami (The role of Light is Double Cast for this second musical.)

Sakura Kiryu as Misa Amane

Hirari Nishida as Sayu Yagami

Hyena Park as Rem

Eiji Yokota as Ryuk

Kiyotaka Imai as Souichirou Yagami

The play will be taking place at the Toshima Ward Performing Arts Exchange Theater (Owl Spot) in Tokyo sometime next year. They are also planning various performances in other parts of Japan, as well as overseas. American composer Frank Wildhorn is responsible for the musical’s songs. He is the same composer responsible for the Whitney Houston hit, “Where Do Broken Hearts Go?”. Tamiya Kuriyama will be directing once again, much like the 2015 and 2017 runs. Expect the staff to reveal more details on the Japanese and international performances soon.
