"Allegiance – A New American Musical" is an epic story of family, love and patriotism set during the Japanese American internment of World War II. On the 60th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, a meeting with a young journalist forces WWII veteran Sam Kimura (television and film icon 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 (Broadway favorite Telly Leung) and his sister Kei (Tony Award winner Lea Salonga) 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.
Dates: Friday, September 7th - Sunday, October 28th, 2012.
