Kabuki is probably the best know of the Japanese classical theatre traditions. Unique to the all-male kabuki theatre is the onnagata, or female-role player, traditionally played by middle-aged men. Traditional training is often handed down from father to son. Leading onnagata Tamasaburou Bando and other dynamic new actors have brought kabuki into new fame and kept alive the Edo tradition of players as cultural "stars."
