    That's certainly odd, wonder how it would work.
    I'll admit, not really something I would normally be interested in but I'm sort of curious.

    Whoa, I can't wait to see the visuals for this! I always see anime stage play news on sites like Anime News Network ...
    I wonder if it's just a play or if it's a musical like some of them turn into (I think Sailor Moon was one)?
    And at least it's Tri, not the original series, so hopefully it won't look too awkward for the adult actors. Ooh, I wonder how they're gonna do any Digimon?

    Sounds very interesting! I'm a big fan of the "Sera Myu" shows (Sailor Moon musicals) so I'm glad that Digimon is getting this kind of attention. I really hope they film one of the shows and release it on home media.

    That's the first thing that came to mind for me, honestly. They already have the Agumon and Gabumon suits, so it's a possibility they make the others. Gomamon might be a bit awkward, though.

    I think some stage productions use screens as the backdrop, which could be how the Digimon appear.

    I believe the old Sailor Moon SuperS musicals used what basically amounted to a laser effect for their version of Pegasus, whereas the new one used an actual actor.

    It would be very interesting if they cast actors as the Digimon but not in suits or not as special effect voiceovers -- I mean maybe people wearing things that identify them as the specific partners, but still appearing very human. It would be a unique take for sure. Kinda like the Broadway version of The Lion King.

    Of course this will focus on the original 8 as advertised, but I think it would be interesting if they reference the 02 kids or maybe even put in some self-aware humor regarding the whole situation, lol. Stage shows are great for that sort of thing.

    EDIT: Though since this is specifically a Digimon Adventure Tri stage show, it is possible they will forego the Digimon partners altogether and maybe focus on the core 8 just before the first film takes place. I doubt it personally, as they probably want to capitalize on the "Digimon" part more than anything else, but at the same time I guess it's a possibility?

    I would want big ridiculous suit actors just because it'd be hilarious.

    To be fair, Japan are known for films about giant suit monsters.
