A common question: How did you get involved with Noh（能）? Well, it was thanks to my potential mother- and father-in-law. I married into a family of professional Noh performers（観世流能楽師）. I have to admit, at first I immersed myself completely in Noh in an effort to convince them to let me marry their daughter. It worked. Now I'm completely addicted to Noh. Sumi-painter,Kumiko Lawrence, my wife of twenty-five years, works with me on my writings and presentations. Below are photos of the Noh stage my father-in-law had built in his home, the stage where our son Edward studies and practices Noh.
