Broadway-Bound ALLEGIANCE Introduces Priority Access Pass ProgramBroadway-Bound ALLEGIANCE Introduces Priority Access Pass Program
by Hilary Kelly - February 24, 2014

The Broadway-aimed musical Allegiance, currently starring George Takei, Lea Salonga, and Telly Leung, has created a Priority Access Pass to give more theatregoers a chance to see the production. The show premiered at San Diego's The Old Globe in September 2012 and quickly sold out, leaving many fans without a chance to see the show at all. A fan who purchases a Priority Access Pass for $5.00 is guaranteed a reserved and numbered spot on a list of theatregoers who get first shot at purchasing tickets when they go on sale - ahead of the general public.

BWW's Report from Austin's Sneak Peek of Broadway-Bound ALLEGIANCEBWW's Report from Austin's Sneak Peek of Broadway-Bound ALLEGIANCE
by Jeff Davis - September 10, 2013

On Tuesday, September 3rd, a very selected audience of lucky Austinites were invited to a special invitation-only screening of a developmental production of the Broadway-bound musical, Allegiance, hoping to raise funds and support to further bring the show to the Broadway stage. I was lucky enough to attend, and while it may be unconventional for a theater critic to review or even comment on a piece they technically did not see live (what was shown in Austin was a professionally filmed version of the world premiere production of Allegiance at the Old Globe in San Diego, CA) the show is too good to ignore.

BWW Review: A Disappointing Dose Of Reality! Prince Poppycock, Frenchie Davis and More at The McCallumBWW Review: A Disappointing Dose Of Reality! Prince Poppycock, Frenchie Davis and More at The McCallum
by David Green - March 1, 2013

For those who are fans of reality television - in particular 'reality competition' television - last night was a 'must see' evening in the theatre that featured finalists from three of prime time's most popular shows - American Idol, America's Got Talent and, the one I actually, personally, enjoy - The Voice. For me, this 'dose of Reality' was more than a little disappointing. Despite the high quality of the performers, it felt more like a 'high school talent show' than a professional production - and, in fact, I have seen a few high school talent shows that had a more slick and professional flair. It was weak form both a technical and directorial perspective and might as well have been produced at a county fair than in the beautiful McCallum - or, in fact, any other professional theatre. I think at a county fair I would have been more forgiving because the barre would have been set low enough that they might have had a chance of reaching it. (more...)
