I can only help a little, but since no one else has chimed in...
This is certainly Chikanobu, signing "Yōshū Chikanobu hitsu" (楊洲周延筆). The publisher's colophon indicates a publication date of Meiji 21 (1888).
The pictured actors, from left to right, are:
Onoe Kikugorō V (尾上菊五郎)
Ichikawa Danjūrō IX (市川団十郎 / 市川團十郎)
Nakamura Fukusuke IV (中村福助)
The name of the (child) actor at the right I cannot make out... Ichikawa-something.
