ALLEGIANCE & Omaze Partner for Chance to Meet George Takei

Sing Out, Louise! Productions and ATA have announced that the new American musical Allegiance has partnered with Omaze, the fundraising platform that gives you the opportunity to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences while donating to great causes. For a chance to win, fans can donate $10 or more to Takei Over The Town with George Takei and raise money for students to attend performances of Allegiance through Inspire Change. The winner will fly to New York City and kick off the evening by having dinner with George, receive VIP tickets to Allegiance and meet the cast. Rounding out the experience is a customized meme created with Takei and shared to his 10 million social followers.

"The story of Allegiance is incredibly relevant for all audiences. Though set in the past, this missing chapter of American history has become part of the national conversation once again," said producers. "We are thrilled to partner with Omaze to benefit Inspire Change: Broadway. Through this incredible fundraising platform hundreds of students will have the opportunity to see Allegiance on Broadway before we play our final performance on February 14."

It was also recently announced that Allegiance has been preserved with a Broadway cast recording produced by Lynne Shankel & Joel Moss for Sing Out, Louise! Productions. The album is available January 22 on BroadwayRecords.com and at the Longacre Theatre; iTunes, Amazon, and additional retailers will have the Allegiance cast album available January 29.

Allegiance stars Tony and Olivier Award winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Les Miserables) in her long-awaited return to Broadway joined by "Star Trek" icon George Takei in his Broadway debut at age 78, and Broadway and "Glee" star Telly Leung. Allegiance is the vibrant and unforgettable story of one family's resilience in the face of seemingly-insurmountable odds, inspired by Takei's real-life experience as a Japanese American during World War II.

Allegiance features a book by Marc Acito, Jay Kuo, and Lorenzo Thione with music and lyrics by Jay Kuo. Olivier Award nominee Stafford Arima directs, in his Broadway debut. Andrew Palermo serves as choreographer.

The cast is as follows: George Takei as Sam Kimura/Ojii Chan; Lea Salonga as Kei Kimura; Telly Leung as Sammy Kimura; Katie Rose Clarke as Hannah Campbell; Michael K. Lee as Frankie Suzuki; Christópheren Nomura as Tatsuo Kimura; and Greg Watanabe as Mike Masaoka. The ensemble features Aaron J. Albano, Belinda Allyn, Marcus Choi, Janelle Toyomi Dote, Dan Horn, Owen Johnston, Darren Lee, Kevin Munhall, Manna Nichols, Rumi Oyama, Shea Renee, Momoko Sugai, Sam Tanabe, Elena Wang, Scott Watanabe and Tony winner Scott Wise.

Allegiance illuminates one of American history's lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura (Takei), transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self (Leung) and his sister Kei (Salonga) fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family, and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. An epic story told with great intimacy, Allegiance explores the ties that bind us, the struggle to persevere, and the overwhelming power of forgiveness and, most especially, love.

Tickets for Allegiance are $45-$149 and can be purchased at Telecharge.com, by calling 212-239-6200, or visiting the box office of the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street).
