Lea Salonga Reacts To News Of Broadway Return In ALLEGIANCE In New Video Interview

Lea Salonga is coming back to Broadway in a fabulous new role!

It was announced earlier this week that new musical Allegiance will be arriving on Broadway later this year with Tony Award winner Lea Salonga alongside George Takei and Telly Leung, and a new video interview with Salonga about the exciting upcoming endeavor is now available to view.

ALLEGIANCE featured a score penned by Jay Kuo, with the musical itself also featuring a book by Lorenzo Thione and Marc Acito, as well as direction by Stafford Arima.

The official description of Allegiance is as follows: "Allegiance is inspired by Takei's true childhood experiences. Traversing the lush California heartland, the windswept prairies of Wyoming and the battlefields of war-torn Europe, Allegiance tells the epic multi-generational tale of deep family loyalty, romance, humor, optimism and unparalleled heroism in the face of fear and prejudice against Japanese-Americans during World War II and beyond."

Of note, Allegiance had its world premiere at The Old Globe Theater in California in 2012.
