Variety | 'Kafka On The Shore' Review


Lincoln Center Festival can always be counted on to inject some class into the soporific summer theater season by hosting avant-garde work by celebrated international companies. This year’s visitors include Japan’s Ninagawa Company, which returns this year with a startling stage version of Haruki Murakami’s surreal novel, “Kafka on the Shore.” As visualized by company director Yukio Ninagawa, this metaphysical fable follows the parallel quests of a young boy in search of his mother and an old man looking for a lost cat, and features talking cats, fearsome villains, and stunning stagecraft.

The story is too old to be commented.
