My school had a presentation of Nōgaku theater, commonly referred to as Noh theater. I really wanted to go. Not because I care about Japanese theater, but because I wanted to engage in annoying “who’s on first” conversations. I think it would have gone something like this:

Me – What’s going on here?

Box Office Employee – We’re having Noh plays today.

Me – Oh, that’s too bad, I was hoping to see a Japanese play.

Box Office – You can, the next show is starting soon.

Me – You said there were having no plays.

Box Office – That’s right, Noh theater!

Me – If there are no plays, how can I watch anything? What type of show is it?

Box Office – We are showing plays with Noh storylines.

Me – Sounds boring…how does it look?

Box Office – We use Noh lighting and Noh set decoration.

Me – So, Noh script and Noh set?

Box Office – Exactly!

Me – You have noh things to be proud of.

Box Office – Thanks!

But it gets worse. People are marketing this medium online.
