It was announced that new musical “JOHNNY’S World” which will be produced, and directed by the president of Johnny & Associates Inc., Johnny Kitagawa, will be played at Imperial Garden Theater during the months of November and December. Hey! Say! JUMP will be starring in it, and 100 others including Kis-My-Ft2, Sexy Zone, A.B.C – Z, and Johnny’s Jr. will also be making appearance.

The stage play will consist of two parts; the first part will be the musical, and the second part will be a singing & dancing show. Johnny Kitagawa revealed that the show will be the compilation of his works and state, “If the audience thinks it’s boring even for a minute, that means it’s my defeat. I’m confident that they would not be bored.” Reportedly, the project will be large-scale as it will include special effects including the use of water, fire, and aroma, as well as lifting people up in to the air.

Domoto Koichi, Takizawa Hideaki, and Kamenashi Kazuya, who have been the leads for stage plays at the same theater, will be making guest appearances as well. In addition, the three will also be participating in the production as advisors, and will support their juniors using their experiences. Appearances of other popular talents are also being planned.

It was also revealed that there will be 10 to 20 exclusive seats for the international fans.
