Avex Pictures announced last week that it is livestreaming the stage play of Natsuki Takaya's Fruits Basket manga worldwide on March 12 at 10:00 p.m. EST and March 13 at 2:00 a.m. EST. Avex Pictures will also stream the play with English subtitles on March 24 at 11:00 p.m. EDT. Tickets for the streams are available now.

The stage play is running from March 4-13 at the Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall in Tokyo. Nobuhiro Mōri wrote the play and is the executive producer, and Tarō Hasegawa directed the play.

The play stars:

  • Ayano-Christie Yoshida as Tohru Honda
  • Naoya Kitagawa as Yuki Sohma
  • Shōhei Hashimoto as Kyo Sohma
  • Hiroki Nakada as Ayame Sohma
  • Shōgo Tamura as Hatsuharu Sohma

  • Yuria Haga as Kyōko Honda
  • Seiya Inagaki as Kazuma Sohma

The manga inspired a 26-episode series in 2001, and then a three-season reboot anime series aired from 2019-2021. The reboot series also received a compilation film titled Fruits Basket -prelude- that opened in Japan on February 18.

Takaya serialized the original Fruits Basket manga in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine from 1998-2006. Tokyopop released the manga in English from 2004 to 2009, and Yen Press re-released the manga in 12 updated omnibus volumes beginning in June 2016.
