The new Broadway musical Allegiance, currently in previews at The Longacre Theatre, opens on November 8. Inspired by George Takei's true-life experience in an internment camp, Allegiance follows one Japanese American family's extraordinary journey through wrongful imprisonment during World War II.
Allegiance stars George Takei as Sam Kimura/Ojii San, Lea Salonga as Kei Kimura and Telly Leung as Sammy Kimura; with book by Marc Acito, Jay Kuo, and Lorenzo Thione and music and lyrics by Jay Kuo.
