Ikiru musical

Ikiru, the 2018 musical based on Akira Kurosawa’s film of the same name, will be broadcast on TV in Japan for the first time.

A performance will be shown on the Eisei Gekijō service on April 11th. This will be the version starring Masachika Ichimura, whereas the version with Takeshi Kaga in the main role will be shown in May.

I believe the service is only available in Japan. Here is the official website.

To get an idea of how the film transformed onto musical stage, you can watch selected bits on YouTube:
