Johnny’s web report on DREAM BOYS Day One press conference
stage play DREAMBOYS that begins it’s first day at the Imperial Theater
on 9/4. The play that has been played many times since 2004, the 2009
version is now being played by Kamenashi Kazuya (KAT-TUN), Shibutani
Subaru (Kanjani8), Tegoshi Yuya (NEWS)! This stage play has held a open
rehearsal and press conference, Johnny’s web was at the theater too.
Will let everyone know how it looks there.
First is the
introduction of the storyline for DREAMBOYS. Kazuya, Subaru and Tegoshi
have attained much popularity in the show business. But, to be able
to embark on a road of their own, they’ve come to their last stage
From then, ten years have passed. Subaru who aims to
be and realises his dreams to be a boxing champion. Yuya who aims to be
a musician, even though having formed his band and started performing,
is unable to successfully get through everyday. Kazuya has not found
his aim, and lives everyday freely.
Pulling these three people
together once again, is the movie to illustrate Subaru’s early life.
Because of this movie, their lives encounter huge changes.
story evolving with the personalities of the three performers, the
music is totally new too. The newly written songs, and also songs
across the groups!
open rehearsal, Subaru and Tegoshi show their singing skills in all the
scenes! We thought that Kamenashi would show his charm in singing, but
instead it’s flying. (The number of times he does the flying this year
is 18, more than last year which was 16. The amount of time he was in
the air is 24 minutes. This is his personal longest record.)
of them standing on the stage, the scene of them emitting sparks with
‘singing’ is full of intensity! The stage play having such members, had
applause from everyone many times.
After that, the final rehearsal has ended, and Kamenashi, Subaru, Tegoshi appear on the stage, and begin the press conference!
First, as they were taking photos, three of them greeted each other and showed their smiles, there was a harmonious atmosphere.
was the thoughts of acting in this stage play with these members this
time. Kamenashi said, ‘Very extravagant! Felt that it was very
extravagant when I was doing it too. After all, Kanjani8, NEWS,
KAT-TUN, have been three different teams until now. There has never
been a feeling of standing on the stage like this too!’, with a look of
excitement and unable to cool down. Also, there is also a song three of
them will collaborate and sing together, about this song, they said
that ‘The timing to sing was decided after a long discussion!’
Kamenashi said. Trying to sing this song, Subaru said ‘It’s a big
success! We’ve done great~ Like this (laughs)’, feeling very
accomplished. Subaru who hasn’t performed in DREAMBOYS for three years
also said, ‘Basically the roles are similar, so there’s no great
discomfort.’, the Subaru who has successfully gotten into his role,
said while smiling widely.
On the other hand, Tegoshi who is
particpating for the first time said, ‘Because the two big brothers
welcomed me gently, it’s really enjoyable!’ After he answered that
enthusiastically, instantly ‘You saying that like this, I don’t seem gentle at all isn’t it (laughs)!’
said Kamenashi. Tegoshi who was being criticised said ‘No, no (laughs).
It’s really enjoyable!’ There was this scene of them laughing together.
As their ages are close, ‘Is there any feeling of rivalry?’
Being asked this question, ‘The emphasis on team work is more than
rivaly’ (Tegoshi), ‘Focus on the overall balance’ (Kamenashi), they
said in unison. Everyone is always considering the overall feeling, the
team work of the company seems to be perfect too.
the emphasis is put on ‘singing’, Subaru who has a scene to sing
together with both Kamenashi or Tegoshi said, ‘It’s very enjoyable,
very fresh!’ answering his thoughts immediately. With the fast pace of
progress for the performances in the story, Tegoshi said, ‘Because I
like singing, dancing! I’m in a really good mood’, having fun
performing in the play.
With flying as the first, this stage
play shows many different performances. The performers themselves think
that there’s also a feeling of time passing in an instant, ‘A
non-reality world like this, hope that the audience will enjoy watching
it’, Kamenashi who hopes that everyone will be immersed in the DREAM
BOYS world said.
Actually, during the rehearsal period all
three of them had their concert tours, it seems to be difficult to
bring the three of them together, the reporters asked ‘Is it difficult to match each other’s frequency?’
Then, ‘We chat backstage too’ Kamenashi said, it seems that there’s "No
problem", ‘Un, un’ Subaru nodding his head too. Kamenashi said, ‘We’ll
show a different type of energy when we perform officially. When the
curtain is raised, we’ll probably think ‘Ah, that’s the feeling!’,
Tegoshi shows his smiling face too. Their breathing is matching too,
the members who have made full preparations. Looking forward to the
actual performance! The press conference showing such a mood.
is everyone’s message. Tegoshi said with a face full of smiles,
‘Initially there were parts I was uneasy about. Rehearsing, and
communicating with the two of them at the same time. I am very happy
about it, and I hope everyone can understand this happiness. Everyone,
please enjoy it too!’ Then, Subaru said ‘A stage play with a rare group
combination. I myself too, want alot to happily do this and pass this
valuable time. Premium feeling, is it? Hope everyone can enjoy watching
this rare group combination!’ Hoping everyone enjoys the performance by
the three of them this time.
Kamenashi said, ‘Performing DREAM
BOYS till now, it’s the first time performing with Tegoshi, the flying
is also very evolved this time, that’s how I feel as I do it. This
space, "non-reality world", hope everyone will enjoy watching it!’,
saying that he hopes everyone will enjoy the whole stage play with
their whole being.
