The story, which revolves around the famous swordsman Miyamoto Musashi, was penned by Inoue more than 20 years ago. He had hoped to turn it into a Broadway musical, but the dream was never realized. Three years prior, Inoue worked with Ninagawa for the first time on a different play (Shakespeare in the 12th Year of Tempo), and they eventually decided to team up again to take "Musashi" to the stage.
The two swordsmen had a famous duel in 1612, during which Sasaki was defeated and killed.
Tatsuya has starred in four variations of this production since 2009, each time Tatsuya acted alongside a different co-star (Shun Oguri (2009), Ryo Katsuji (2010) and Junpei Mizobata (2013-14 & 2018).
