About this show

With a score fusing traditional Japanese music and soul-jazz, Deadly She-Wolf Assassin at Armageddon! pays homage to the 1970s Japanese manga series Lone Wolf and Cub (Kosure Okami)--a raging cult hit that has inspired many works and adaptations across genres over the past few decades, including the Hollywood blockbuster Road to Perdition. In this stage version by Ho and Margraff, director Sonoko Kawahara and martial arts choreographer Tsuyoshi Kaseda collaborate to tell the tale of a violent and beautiful assassin whose journey traverses a terrain of deception, revenge, double crossing, and death. Bringing to life the musical score, Fred Ho conducts a 5-member ensemble featuring bass, percussion, keyboard, alto sax, fue & shakuhachi, and 20 string koto.
