AROUND THE WORLD
Opening this years Lincoln Center Festival in a blaze of samurai-sword blades, acclaimed Japanese theater director Yukio Ninagawa returns to the fest with the Noh-inspired legend Musashi, a tale of two warriors on the hunt for revenge. Take note, ladies: Also returning is 28-year-old Japanese heartthrob Tatsuya Fujiwara, whom Variety called lithe and luscious in the 2005 sold-out Lincoln Center Festival performances of Ninagawas Modern Noh Plays.
