The show begins with Asaji Saki in a terrific red, black and gold number singing 'Hello Beautiful Night', accompanied by Mimi Anri, Marisa Hitomi, Ryou Akino and Oka Kazumi. There's a little dancing, then while Saki slips off, the girls do a swing dance to 'Uki Uki Midnight'.
Saki returns with a soulful display of angstful love in the song 'Because I Love You', which somehow manages to segue into 'Ding Dong', a lively, joyful song and dance number, which lets Saki show off the dancing she became famous for.
The girls withdraw, and there is some dialogue which sounds like it's from a show, leading into the song Desperado. During this song, Saki and Ryou Akino perform a dance not unlike a Tango.
Another angstful song follows, then Saki sits down at a grand piano and alternates between playing and singing a beautifully melancholy piece. All these sad songs are followed by the four musumeyaku as bouncy teeny-boppers. Saki returns in a purple sequinned jumpsuit for a stirring rendition of 'The Winner Takes it All' followed by an unusually up-beat 'Maybe This Time'.
The show is concluded by an english rendition of 'Any Dream Will Do', with Saki resplendent in white and gold ruffles, followed with a reprise of 'Hello Beautiful Night' with the musumeyakus again.
Any other interesting or important stuff.
