Ninomiya plays killer in “Strangers on a Train”
Arashi’s Kazunari Ninomiya will be performing in his first stage play in four years. He has been given the starring role in “Strangers on a Train” (“Mishiranu Joukyaku”), opening this summer.
The play is based on the popular novel of the same name, which was turned into a film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951. The suspenseful story tells of a wealthy young man named Bruno who happens to meet an up-and-coming architect named Guy during a train ride. They each have their own difficult personal circumstances, and Bruno proposes that they “exchange” murders – Bruno will kill Guy’s unfaithful wife if Guy kills Bruno’s father.
