Shoji Tabuchi is true Branson royalty! Holding court in a palace-like theater of rich purple and gold, this surprisingly humble, down-to-earth artist delivers a high caliber show unlike any other. His exceptional skill on the violin, coupled with a keen sense of humor and a dazzling sense of style, has kept Shoji on top for many years. Aided by wife Dorothy’s gorgeous productions and daughter Christina’s natural born talent for entertaining, Shoji has given Branson one of its best shows for more than 20 years. He’s backed by an incredible orchestra and stunning singers and dancers, all complemented by fantastic sets and props, as well as elaborate and beautiful costumes. The visual effect of everything you’ll see on stage is nothing short of mind-blowing - you might just forget that it’s really a music show!
Many things in the Shoji Tabuchi show remain constant - you’ll always enjoy a wide variety of music styles that include everything from country to classical. His mastery of gorgeous classical pieces will have you falling in love with the violin, that same instrument that moments before was delivering a foot stomping fiddle tune! And Christina’s lovely voice is its own special treat; she’s grown up with the show and becomes more integral to the overall production with each passing year. And from time to time, Shoji introduces an element to the show to keep it fresh and fun. One addition in recent years was the Taiko drums. These symbols of his native country of Japan bring a strong sense of this beautiful and ancient land straight to the Branson stage. In Japan, this drum recreates the origin of the spirit of the Japanese people, and the show features 25 drums of three different styles and sizes. It’s truly a mesmerizing experience, both hearing and seeing these precious symbols of the Japanese people.
Dance is another key element of every performance of the Shoji Tabuchi show. Dorothy’s passion for dance united her with a renowned choreographer to create the dance sequences, and to train the wonderfully skilled dancers you’ll see in the show. And then there’s the venue itself...this is not simply a theater in the traditional sense, it’s reminiscent of the grand theaters of the 1930’s, the type of performance venues where audiences enjoyed everything from opera to vaudeville, and from live theater to moving pictures. Resplendent in rich shades of purple and shimmering golds, you half expect to find a throne complete with a crowned king right there in the lobby! And the restrooms attract visitors all on their own. The ladies room features fresh flowers, elaborate seating, marble and crystal accents, and other glamorous pieces of decor - it’s simply stunning. The men’s room features a full-size billiards table with viewing gallery, a fireplace, and other luxurious touches. These bathrooms are so popular, you’ll even find them pictured on postcards in the gift shop!
Incredible music, beautiful dance, stunning decor, and everything dazzling to the eyes at every turn, it’s nearly impossible to adequately describe the experience that is the Shoji Tabuchi show - it’s truly beyond compare! Discover the magic of Shoji Tabuchi for yourself...don’t worry, you won’t need royal connections or wait to receive an engraved invitation...Shoji is thrilled to save a seat for young and old, casual or formal, blue collar or white. Everyone is invited to this fabulous palace for the experience of a lifetime! It’s only in Branson, and only at the Shoji Tabuchi show!
