Inspired by the true-life experience of its star George Takei, Allegiance follows one family's extraordinary journey in this untold American story following the events of Pearl Harbor. Their loyalty was questioned, their freedom taken away, but their spirit could never be broken.
Allegiance was originally filmed on Broadway while creating the B-Roll for the musical. The footage was later used to create the live cinema release which was named 'George Takei’s Allegiance: The Broadway Musical on the Big Screen'.
Sing Out, Louise! Productions, which financed the Broadway production, also produced the film version all on its own.
The film had a brief cinema run in December 2016 and was the highest grossing filmed-on-stage capture at that time.
As a result, the film has numerous repeat screening in movie theaters in 2017 and 2018. In addition to the Broadway capture itself, a documentary detailing the process of brining Allegiance to Broadway was also released in December of 2018.
Sing Out, Louise! Productions eventually released the show on home media in 2020, first on an exclusive 2-DVD set and later on a stand-alone single DVD.
The show is now part of the BroadwayHD library.
