On Dec. 4 for one night only "The Double Bass," adapted from the novel by Patrick Suskind, will be performed at Club Vanilla in Tokyo's Roppongi.
The show will star celebrated American actor and director Louis Fantasia in a one-man comedy about a musician's obsession with sex and music. Fantasia plays the double bass himself and the production includes music by Mozart, Schubert and Brahms.
