With a minimal set, "Katsura Sunshine's Rakugo" entertains the audience with a comic monologue followed by a traditional story. Featuring just the lone storyteller dressed in a kimono, kneeling on a cushion, with only a fan and a hand towel for props, this deceptively simplistic act is captivating. 

Called the King of Kimono Comedy, Rakugo is the 400-year-old Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling with only 800 Rakugo Masters around the world today. Hailing from Canada, Sunshine is the only Western Rakugo Master in the world and he is hilarious, charming, universally funny and yet so very Japanese. Sunshine is the perfect performer to bridge the gap between the East and the West in a hilarious fashion.

Critics have raved "A delight, Katsura Sunshines Rakugo is funny and exciting. If you are looking for a good way to laugh and forget your troubles this is the show for you!" and "funny and delightfully intimate with a feeling of improvisation that makes it easy to love". Recently the emcee of the G20 in Osaka, "Katsura Sunshine's Rakugo" traveled across the globe to share his tales on the Broadway stage.

Run Time: 75 minutes, with no intermission

Age Limit: Recommended for ages 14+. Children under the age of four (4) are not permitted in the theatre.
