Star Trek fans met him as Captain Sulu of the USS Enterprise. Civil rights advocates know him as a proud supporter of the LGBT community, and stargazers know that Asteroid 7307 Takei is named in his honor. But history knows George Takei as just one of thousands of Japanese immigrants taken from their house at gunpoint by the US government during WWII. In Takei’s case, they were taken to Rohwer War Relocation Center, an internment camp located in Arizona. It was there that George’s parents took a stand against a questionnaire designed to determine where their loyalties lay—a concept at the very heart of Allegiance.
Inspired by George Takei’s childhood experiences, and starring himself alongside Tony Award winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon), Allegiance peers into the years of American paranoia that followed Pearl Harbor. Along with 120,000 other Japanese-Americans, the Kimura family has its loyalty to their country questioned, losing its home—and its freedom—in the process. While Sam Kimura tries to prove his patriotism by enlisting, his sister, Kei, protests, leading to a dramatic exploration of duty, change, and forgiveness set to a rousing score by Jay Kuo.
