Allegiance on Broadway
Music & Lyrics: Jay Kuo
Book: Marc Acito, Jay Kuo, Lorenzo Thione
Director: Stafford Arima
Inspired by the true-life experience of its star George Takei (“Star Trek,”), Allegiance follows one family’s extraordinary journey in this untold American story. A mysterious envelope leads Sam Kimura (Takei) back 60 years to a time when he (played as a young man by Telly Leung) and his sister Kei (Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga--Miss Saigon) strive to save their family from the wrongful imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Their paths take them from the lush farmlands of California to the wastelands of Wyoming to the battlefields of Europe, and their divided loyalties threaten to tear them apart forever. 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.
