The official website for the stage play adaptations of Atlus' Persona 3 video game announced on Sunday that a third play has been green-lit.
The third play, titled Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Sōen Kesshō~ (Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Bismuth Crystal~), will premiere on June 4 at the Theater G Rosso venue in Tokyo, returning to the location of the first play. The play will have showings until June 13.
The following cast members have been announced as returning (the photos below are from the second play):
Makoto Kimura is returning to direct the play, and Kodora Kagurazawa is also returning to write the scripts. The tagline for the play is, "It's weak, it's fragile, but still, the sparkling miracle stills ties together."
This will be the third Persona 3 play, with the first, Persona 3: the Weird Masquerade ~Ao no Kakusei~ premiering in January 2014, and the second, Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Gunjō no Meikyū~ (Persona 3: the Weird Masquerade ~The Ultramarine Labyrinth~) premiering last September. Both plays had separate performances for the male protagonist (played by Shouta Aoi) and the female protagonist (Kana Asumi), and the two did not appear on stage at the same time.
