Onnagata and Kabuki
Also, if you like Orange Chocolate, you should give "Backstage Prince" by Sakurakouji Kanoko (also writes "Black Bird") a read.  It's a short but sweet 2 volume series about another young man who's a kabuki star.  The female main character, Akari,  in "Backstage Prince" seems to be the prototype for Black Bird's Misao.
