Starting today, October 26, advanced tickets are now on sale for a one-night-only showing of Allegiance on December 13 in select cinema houses nationwide.
Inspired by the life of its creator and star George Takei, Allegiance is the culmination of a decades-long dream to tell his story on a Broadway stage. A journey that was captured as part of the documentary To Be Takei, by the way.
And to get you psyched for the theatrical debut of the Broadway musical, here’s the cast of Allegiance joining Lin for a #Ham4Ham performance of the song “Gaman!”
Allegiance is the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the events of Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but his sister, Kei, fiercely protests the government’s treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves. Legendary performer George Takei — (Star Trek, Heroes), who was himself an internee as a child, stars alongside Tony® winner Lea Salonga — (Miss Saigon, Mulan) in this enthralling and epic new musical. But as long-lost memories are unlocked, Sam finds that it is never too late to forgive and to recognize the redemptive power of love.
