"Jennifer Robertson casts the Takarazuka Revue as a hybrid protagonist in her innovative and demystifying analysis of sexual, social, and national order and disorder in twentieth-century Japan."—Carroll Smith-Rosenberg, author of Disorderly Conduct: Visions of Gender in Victorian America

Norton Shakespeare

This thoughtful, learned, and subtle analysis of the all-female revue, Takarazuka, deserves a wide audience. The paradoxes of the Revue's staging of conventional gender roles, its simultaneous reinforcement and subversion of the normal cast a fascinating light on Japanese culture.
