Yes, there really is going to be a Resident Evil musical show


I hope there'll be a song called 'Jill Sandwich'

Did you ever play Resident Evil and think to yourself, “man, this story would make a great musical?”

Nope, neither did I, but someone did, because later this year Musical Resident Evil will open in Japan. 

The show will be directed by G2 and star famed Japanese actor Reon Yuzuki, who’s mostly known for playing male characters in the all-female show, Takarazuka Revue.

The production will be overseen by Capcom's own Hiroyuki Kobayashi. 

Believe it or not, this is not the first time a Capcom game has come to the stage. Takarazuka Revue has previously performed three shows based upon Pheonix Wright series, and one inspired by Sengoku Basara

Musical Resident Evil will run from September to October in Tokyo, and move to Osaka in November. 

What other video games do you think might make great musical numbers?
