News - Yabu Kota Stage Play  
In a career that spans almost 8 years Hey!Say!JUMP’s Yabu Kota has appeared in many a stage production, from Stand by Me to Dreamboy(s) to Takizawa Everything, most of the time in supporting / backdancing roles. Now it’s finally his turn to be the leading star in a butai. Starting on December 12 he will play Georg Nowack in the musical She Loves Me. The run of 56 performances at Tokyo’s Theatre Creation will end on January 31, 2010, Yabu’s 20th birthday.
She Loves Me revolves around sales clerks Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash who, despite being consistently at odds with each other at work, are unaware that each is the other’s secret pen pal they met through lonely-hearts ads. (More info: Wikipedia)

Amalia will be played by 22-year-old actress Kanda Sayaka. Also appearing in the show will be Johnny’s veterans and Shonentai members Nishikiori Kazukiyo (44) and Uekusa Katsuhide (42, father of Johnny’s Jr Uekusa Yuta).
