Beloved television star and popular social media icon George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes) stars in this unforgettable new musical alongside Telly Leung (Godspell, Glee) and Tony Award® winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Aladdin, Mulan) in her highly anticipated Broadway return. 

Inspired by the true-life experience of its star George Takei , 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 (Lea Salonga ) strive to save their family from the wrongful imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Sam enlists in the army to prove the Kimuras’ loyalty, but Kei joins draft resisters fighting for the rights of their people. 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.

Quotation Mark

A concentration camp seems like the last place one would want to set a musical, but that is exactly what has been done by the writers of Allegiance, now making its Broadway debut at the Longacre Theatre. Shockingly, it works: Not only is Allegiance a grandiose epic reminiscent of Miss Saigon, it also serves as a compelling family drama. The fact that this story of Japanese internment during World War II features an original book and score is also refreshing in a market saturated with jukebox musicals and stage adaptations of popular films. In that respect, Allegiance is delightfully old-school: a big schmaltzy musical of dubious historical accuracy delivered with ample humor and heart.

The heart of Allegiance, though, is its talented supporting cast: Not only do their voices add layers and harmonies to songs that otherwise sound largely the same, but playing the Japanese-Americans in the camps and briefly, the citizens of Hiroshima, they represent the sheer number of people affected. They are especially effective when standing still, frozen in disbelief, grief, shock. It can be easier, sometimes, to write off the tragedy of one family, but the chorus reminds us that this didn’t just happen to a few, but 120,000 people.

“Allegiance” is likely to spur questions about whether the actions of the U.S. government are overstated … or sugarcoated. American soldiers are generally played as villainous. There is a relevance to the current political climate concerning immigrants that rings loud and clear.“Allegiance” will have you asking why Japanese-Americans were interned as a class, when Germans and Italians were done so only intermittently. It’s meant to be funny when one of Sammy’s buddies says: “We’re at war with Italy, but nobody put Joe DiMaggio in a camp.” The line indeed gets a laugh, but it’s gallows humor
