You know, at first I thought it was incredibly stupid, but with how overly emotional and sentimental, as well as how crazy Fotns is, I can see the musical doing a decent job.

So how's that going to work? May'n sings while Ayaka Kirahara lip syncs?

I don't know if japanese theater is the same as American. As someone who was in it, there is often two different people casted for shows. This is for if one actor needs to leave or has a problem. They will have different days they perform. If this is like how western theater is done.

They're both playing the same role, but they would be on different days. Double casting is a very common practice in Japanese theatre to account for the conflicts within their cast since theatre actors tend to do other activities on top of their shows.

To addmore to what other have said, here's an example for this:
