Hello, For those in and around New york City. This is a great show with Koto and shakuhachi playing in a scorching jazz ensemble.
DEADLY SHE-WOLF ASSASSIN AT ARMAGEDDON! is the latest music/theater and martial arts totur de force from collaborators Fred Ho and Ruth Margraff. A daring and imaginative homage to the 1970s Japanese raging cult manga and movies hit, Lone Wolf and Cub (Kozure Ookami), which has inspired many other adaptations and works in comic books and film over the past decades. DEADLY SHE-WOLF…explodes with a ferocious stylistic mix of Japanese Noh theater and modern-day anime and manga influences with unique multi-martial arts and sword fighting choreography and a glorious score fusing traditional Japanese music and soul-jazz.
I highly recommend this show. Not to see me slice people up, but to hear the live music. There is 20 stringed Koto by Yumi Kurosawa and shakuhachi and fue by Masaru Koga. This is a great opportunity to hear how the flute can underscore action-packed drama.

Hi All, Thanks to those who came the past two weeks! Just wanted to say this is the last weekend of performances. All the shows and been sold out or close for this run. Those who perform know that repeated performances allow for much growth and freedom. The band is not only scorching, but the musical blend with koto, shakuhachi and fue it is uniquely beautiful. See you there! - Perry
