I didn’t think CLAMP would ever draw weekly again after Tsubasa and XXXHOLiC — this latter is being published in a monthly basis despite being running in a weekly magazine.
Am I excited about this? Yes I am. Am I happy to have weekly or semi-weekly CLAMP fix? Hell yeah!

The official website of CLAMP x SOUND THEATRE XXXHOLiC has been renewed to include story, staff, cast information and more.
The website also informs that tickets for both presentations on January 28 and 29 have completely sold out.
CLAMP also drew a special illustration for the event, which might be used for some of the exclusive goods expected to be sold at the venue. The list of goods hasn’t been announced yet.
CLAMP x SOUND THEATRE XXXHOLiC is a stage performance that mixes drama and live music.
CLAMP member Nanase Ohkawa is in charge of writing the script and the story is centered on a lady who goes to Yuuko’s shop seeking help “to find important things”. The two hints that might lead to find those things are “women” and “favorite songs”.
No word yet whether this will be later released in DVD or Blu-Ray.
