George Takei's "Allegiance" Musical Now Playing At The Old Globe In San Diego

For the past couple of years we've been bringing you news of George Takei's Allegiance - A New American Musical, based on his experience in the Japanese-American interment camps of WWII. Now, the musical is headlining at The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego through October 21st. Starring George as Sam Kimra an elderly veteran and war hero from World War II, the play also stars Lea Salonga as Kei Kimura, Telly Leung as Sammy Kimura, with Michael K. Lee, Paul Nakauchi, Alle Trimm, and Paolo Montalban.

“Allegiance is a major musical about a forgotten part of history,” says Takei, who spent his childhood in an internment camp in Arkansas and was a founder of the Japanese American National Museum. “Kuo’s music soars, and the epic story stirs deep emotions. This is a hugely important, historic work.” (source Allegiance Facebook Fan Page)

About the play:
ALLEGIANCE – A NEW AMERICAN MUSICAL is an epic story of family, love and patriotism set during the Japanese American internment of World War II. Sixty years after the attack on Pearl Harbor, a chance meeting forces WWII veteran Sam Kimura (television and film star George Takei) to remember his family's relocation from their California farm to the Heart Mountain internment camp. As they struggle to adjust to their new home, Young Sam (Telly Leung – Godspell, "Glee") and his sister Kei (Lea Salonga, Tony Award winner for Miss Saigon) find themselves torn between loyalty to their family and allegiance to their country. With its moving score, ALLEGIANCE takes audiences on a journey into our nation's history through the eyes of one American family.

You can get your tickets and more information for official Old Globe website and the official Allegiance - A New American Musical website.
