"Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" The Super Live marks the first time a 2.5D Musical will be on an American stage. 2.5D Musicals, which began around 2000, are based on popular contemporary Japanese culture: Manga Comics, Anime and Video Games.  Manga and animation are in 2D, and live theatre is in 3D; Therefore, they call performances based on manga and animations 2.5D. A theatre to showcase these types of shows has been built in Japan. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon has sold over 36 million copies worldwide; Created by Naoko Takeuchi, Sailor Moon began as a manga in 1991 in Japan in girl's comic magazine, "Nakayosi", published by Kodansha. It was subsequently adapted as an anime, and then a live-action television program. A sequel to the series is also now in production

In "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" The Super Live, the characters come to life, live on stage and it was produced in part to commemorate the 25th anniversary since Sailor Moon was first published. The brand has generated $5 billion in merchandise sales.

"At its core, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is about strong girlfriends banding together to fight for what they believe in...that's timely! Sailor Moon and her Sailor Guardians are equipped with powers that help them defeat evil and the characters are imbued with the self-determination to make their own confident decisions. In short, they are the ultimate example of 'girl power.' We look forward to introducing American audiences to Sailor Moon, her Guardians and the 2.5D Musical experience." -producer Takaharu Uera
