I was totally baffled (and creeped out) by this sign I saw hanging all over the subway stations during the past few weeks. One of my students told me yesterday that this is an advertisement for kabuki! The actor is known as the king of kabuki, or something like that, and plays five different roles in one play. All the guys in this sign are the same man! I was so relieved to finally know what in the world this frightening sign meant! Tickets were around $150, cheaper ones for $90.
