Allegiance will play in select cinemas nationwide, one night only, Tuesday, December 13th.
Straight from Broadway and inspired by the true-life experiences of George Takei, Allegiance tells the incredible story of a family whose lives are upended by the internment of nearly 120,000 people, the majority of whom were Japanese Americans during World War II. Allegiance stars Tony Award-winner, Lea Salonga (MISS SAIGON), and Broadway favorites, Telly Leung (“Glee”, RENT) and Katie Rose Clarke (WICKED). The cinema event will feature and exclusive introduction from Takei, as well as special behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creators of the Broadway production.
“Allegiance is smart, wonderful and exhilarating theater. Every American should see this show, let alone every Japanese American. Though set against the background of Japanese American internment, it’s a moving and compelling story about conflicting loyalties, to country, to family, to oneself. It’s a story about love and about honor, with beautiful music, great storytelling, and a wonderful cast that entertains as well as educates.”
– Senator Mazie Hirono, Hawai’i
When Allegiance began performances on Broadway in early October, it could not have anticipated how profoundly timely its themes would be.”
