The "Fushigi Yugi -Ao no Shō- (Fushigi Yugi -Blue Chapter-)" musical will run at Zenrosai Hall Space Zero in Tokyo from October 13-21. Sayaka Asai (composer for Saiyuki Kageki-den -Reload-) is replacing Kōtarō Yoshitani (Alice in the Country of Hearts musical, Hetalia ~Singin' in the World~) to direct the musical and write the script.

Fushigi Yugi ~Ake no Shō~ (Fushigi Yugi ~Vermilion Chapter~) was amipro's first musical adaptation of Watase's manga after the company previously produced three stage plays. The musical was listed as the first of two parts, and it ran at Tokyo's Owlspot theater in April 2016 for 15 performances. Asuka Ami was credited as producer.

Nelke Planning also produced a stage play of Fushigi Yugi in 2015, focusing on Tamahome, and starring Golden Bomb band member Yutaka Kyan. It was the first stage play adaptation of the manga not produced by amipro.
