Kanzaburo Nakamura XVIII, Kabuki Legend, Dead At 57
"Mr. Kanzaburo's career spanned five decades; his first performance was in 1959 at age 3, in the shadow of his father ... [He] initially immersed himself in the classics before forging his own path. In 1994, he collaborated with the contemporary theater director Kazuyoshi Kushida to bring Kabuki performances to sites frequented more by Tokyo's sneaker-wearing hipsters than by the theatergoing elite."
