This is from Wikipedia : The Takarazuka Revue (宝塚歌劇団 Takarazuka Kagekidan) is a Japanese all-female musical theater troupe based in the city of Takarazuka, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. Women play all roles in lavish, Broadway-style productions of Western-style musicals, and sometimes stories adapted from shōjo manga and Japanese folktales. The name of the troupe comes from the Hankyu Takarazuka Line in suburban Osaka: The company is a division of Hankyu Railway Co., and actresses are employees of the company.
