We are happy to present a screening of Allegiance – A New Musical, starring and inspired by the true history of George Takei with supporting organization Victory Gardens Theater!
An important story told with great resonance and intimacy, Allegiance illuminates one of American history’s lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura (George Takei), transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self (Telly Leung, Godspell, “Glee”) and his sister Kei (Tony Award®-winner Lea Salonga, Miss Saigon, Mulan) fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II.
The film runs 2 hours and 59 minutes.
