"Natsukashi no Kohaku Uta Gassen' by the Grateful Crane Ensemble

“Natsukashi no Kouhaku  Uta Gassen,” a nostalgic and entertaining spoof of Japan’s famous New Year’s Eve singing contest,  will be returning to Southern California on Saturday, February 2 at 2 pm at the James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance.

Presented by the Grateful Crane Ensemble, this two-act show features 28 of Japan’s most famous songs in the singing contest format made popular every year on NHK’s nationally televised “Kouhaku Uta Gassen.”

Grateful Crane’s version pits the Red Team (women) vs. the White Team (men) as they portray some of Japan’s most famous singers singing their most famous songs.  At the end of the show, the winner of the contest will be determined by a vote from the audience.

The James Armstrong Theatre is located at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center, 3330 Civic Center Drive in Torrance.

General admission tickets are $35.  For reservations, leave a message on the Grateful Crane ticket line at (310) 995-5841, and you will receive a call back to confirm your order.
