About this item

Inspired by true events, Allegiance is the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the events of Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but his sister, Kei, fiercely protests the government's treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves. Legendary performer George Takei (Star Trek, 'Heroes') , who was himself an internee as a child, stars alongside Tony® winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Mulan) in this enthralling and epic new musical. Everything a musical is supposed to be. Beautiful, politically poignant, romantically oriented, and emotionally gripping. --The Huffington PostAs an antidote to the hateful rhetoric spewing from the presidential campaign, you should take in a Broadway musical. Not to escape the viciousness - to better understand its consequences. When Allegiance began performances at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway in early October, it could not have anticipated how profoundly timely its themes would be. Come see Allegianceand face the illuminating music --The Washington Post
