It is almost here! His first performance is at 5:00PM on November 24th, 2019. Boston time will be 3:00 AM…! I can just Imagine our dear Ilwoo Oppa working hard memorizing and practicing his lines, going to rehearsals… he must be so excited! He must already feel some butterflies in his stomach too. I am updating all the posts that he, his official account and the media have published lately.
For this play there are multiple actors for every role. For Michael the actors are Jung Il woo along with Kang Seung Ho and Kwak Dong Yeon. So sets of posters for every character were shot:
The rest of the characters:
Dr Greenberg a psychiatrist trying to investigate the disappearance of a fellow colleague, Dr. Lawrence:
Miss Peterson, the head nurse:
I found the script of the play online, and though the name of the characters is not next to the writing, one can tell who is talking. I will prepare you… the ending is very surprising! This is the LINK.
These are videos posted by Jung Il woo of the poster shoot:
and this is another important character: Anthony the Elephant:
At first I thought that Ilwoo had named his Elephant Anthony, but when I read the Script I found out that, the elephant is called Anthony in the play. This amazed me! You see, Jung Il-woo is Catholic and his Catholic name is Anthony! I wonder if the name of the elephant helped him choose the play!
I also found out that there was a man named Lawrence Anthony that was an international conservationist, environmentalist, explorer and bestselling author. He helped to save many elephants Imagine that when he died, the elephants went to pay their respect:
I wonder if Nicolas Billon, named the characters in the play after this man! Lawrence Anthony died in 2012, and Nicolas published the script in 2014. Fascinating huh?
Tickets…? Are you considering going? Here is the information and LINK. It costs $55.
Now, I thought that this play was going to take place at the theater complex Arko, where he had performed before, but it’s a different venue. It is called the YES24 Stage, Hall 3. It’s very close to the Arko complex, about three blocks away. Here is the LINK of the venue. This is a LINK of the place in Google Maps. And here is the LINK to the Elephant Song page within the venue. These are some photos I found of the place. It is a very small intimate theater seating 255 people… very blessed people!
Here are a few photos of the venue I found. I always like to see images so I can imagine and pray properly…
These are the images I created and posted in Instagram:
These are the other photos he posted I used in my previous edits:
To say I wish I could go is an understatement. I looked at every weekend carefully, but it is just too inconvenient and expensive at this time… as I’ve stated before that I wish to see him in a play someday… now I state: I see Jung Il woo in a play! I delight, my heart is so happy… I see him… I see him… I absolutely delight!
I hope someone is daring and takes some photos… a video? Maybe the media will do an interview where they show a bit!!! Yes!
When I see this he endears me so:
Ilwoo ssi, I will be there in spirit… supporting you as I always do! All the very best!!! 화이팅! 일우야!
