Gorgeous Entertainment is an American film, theater, and special-event production company co-founded by Michael Wolk and Kumiko Yoshii in 1997. It primarily exports American theater to Japan and imports Japanese theater to America.[1] Gorgeous Entertainment has been a longtime collaborator with Japanese director Amon Miyamoto.[2][3][4][5][6] Gorgeous Entertainment also organizes the annual Japanese cultural festival Japan Day@Central Park, which has taken place for the past twelve years and included such performers as AKB48, Akiko Yano, Jero, Sonim, Puffy AmiYumi, Kana Uemura, and America's Got Talent winner Kenichi Ebina.[7][8][9][10][11][12]

Noteworthy past theater projects include the 2004 Broadway revival of Pacific Overtures (which was nominated for four Tony Awards), and Japanese productions of The Fantastiks, Macbeth, The Producers, The Sound of Music, and the 2015 Harold Prince revue musical Prince of Broadway.[1][13][2][5][14]

Gorgeous Entertainment has also produced films, including You Think You Really Know Me: The Gary Wilson Story, a documentary about musician Gary Wilson. Gary Wilson credited the film as being one of the driving forces behind his return to mainstream attention, even calling it "one of the highlights of [his] life".[15][16][17][18]
