Port City Playhouse in Alexandria, Virginia, United States is currently staging a theatre adaptation of Kurosawa’s Rashomon. It has apparently got some fairly good reviews.
Based on the reviews, the work seems to follow Kurosawa’s film quite faithfully. Oh yes, and if you go tomorrow (Friday 12th), you can apparently meet with the actors and director, as well get some Japanese food. Let us know how it was if you can make it!
In related news, Ping Chong’s Throne of Blood is, I think, now playing in New York.

The New York Times gives a nice overview of the production….
… and then gives it a lousy review! Seems the critic is a Kurosawa fan.
