VIDEO: ALLEGIANCE's George Takei Responds to Trump's Comments on Muslim Immigration
George Takei appeared on MSNBC's Live with Thomas Roberts to respond to Donald Trump's comments on Muslim immigration. "It's ironic that he made that comment on December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day," says the star of Broadway's ALLEGIANCE, "the very event that put us into those internment camps." He went on to say, "What Donald Trump is talking about is something that is going to make his Logo 'America Disgraced Again.'" Watch the appearance below!
Takei makes his Broadway debut in the new American musical Allegiance at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street, opposite Tony and Olivier Award winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Les Miserables) in her long-awaited return to Broadway, and "Glee" star Telly Leung. Allegiance. The show tells 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 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.
