George Takei, Lea Salonga, and More on the Importance of Landmark Musical Allegiance
The stars talked with TheaterMania on their opening night.
It's taken seven years of development, but Allegiance, a new musical that follows a family in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, is finally on Broadway. The opening night was a celebratory occasion for several reasons: It heralded the stage return of Tony winner Lea Salonga and the Broadway debut of Star Trek icon George Takei. But there's one more that no one is taking lightly. As Takei points out, this is the first time Broadway has ever seen a story about this subject matter. Go inside the opening-night party and hear the cast and creative team discuss how important that really is.
