28 There is little validity to the physiological argument that Japanese women could not play onnagata roles because of a lack of strength or T H E O RY I N T O P E R F O R M A N C E 25 stamina. 29 The only valid reason a Japanese woman cannot play onnagata roles is because she does not have a male body beneath the kimono; therefore the ambience of the difference between female gender acts and the male body beneath is not possible. Indeed, the presence of male sexual organs underneath the kimono is a requirement for kabuki onnagata performance, because the spectator must be able to imagine a male body beneath the feminine costuming.
