George Takei's Allegiance
Actor & activist George Takei ‘lights up the stage’ (Daily Telegraph) in this ‘beautiful, deeply moving’ (Sunday Express) UK premiere of the uplifting Broadway Musical inspired by his true life experience. 

Allegiance is the ‘hard to resist’ (The Times) story of the Kimura family and their struggles in the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

In this ‘rousing piece of musical theatre’ (WhatsOnStage), Allegiance reveals the courage and loyalty of a family in a time of great injustice as 120,000 Japanese Americans are forced into internment camps; testing the power and resilience of the human spirit in this ‘gripping and surprisingly uplifting’ (AllThatDazzles) musical. 

Telly Leung holds the audience ‘spellbound’ (TheatreMonkey) as Sam Kimura, who believes enlisting is the only way to demonstrate his patriotism and win the freedom of his people. His sister Kei - played by the ‘exceptionally talented’ (The Stage) Aynrand Ferrer - sides against him and joins the resistance movement in the camp. Soon the political conflict is mirrored within the family, leading brother and sister down starkly different paths as they are forced to decide where their allegiance lies. 

***** ‘Allegiance sets the bar for 2023 theatre ridiculously high’ (All that Dazzles) 

With a score by Jay Kuo and  a book by Marc Acito, Lorenzo Thione and Jay Kuo, George Takei's Allegiance held its world premiere at San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre in 2012, setting box office records. After a triumphant run on Broadway and a subsequent film seen around the world, Allegiance transfers to London for its European premiere in a newly conceived production directed and choreographed by Tara Overfield Wilkinson, playing at Charing Cross Theatre until 8 April 2023.
