Beloved television star and popular social media icon George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes) stars in this unforgettable new musical alongside Telly Leung (Godspell, "Glee") and Tony Award winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Aladdin, Mulan) in her highly anticipated Broadway return. Inspired by Takei's true-life experience, Allegiance is an untold American story spanning from the lush California heartland, to the windswept prairies of Wyoming, to the European battlefields of World War II- a multi-generational tale of one Japanese American family's love, optimism and unparalleled heroism in the face of unimaginable circumstances.
