George Takei’s Allegiance Broadway Capture Streams Free March 4

George Takei's Broadway musical Allegiance, starring Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga and Telly Leung streams free today on "Broadway at Home". The film, which will be available globally, is a 2015 capture shot live at Broadway's Longacre Theatre.

The musical recently opened at London's Charing Cross Theatre to favorable reviews, where it is currently playing until April 8. The London production features two of its Broadway headliners - George Takei and Telly Leung. 

In her review for BritishTheatre, Libby Purves said: "Good musicals can face tough bleak stories and irredeemable losses, however necessary the upbeat final moment and triumphant curtain-call. And this is a good one.  Not perfect,  not perhaps among the musical greats,  but a piece of storytelling and performance which holds you fast."



Inspired by the life story of actor and activist George Takei, Allegiance tells the story of the Kimura family and their struggles in the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

In a world ravaged by the effects of war, Allegiance reveals the courage and loyalty of 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.

George Takei's Allegiance will be streaming for free on March 4th at 6PM and 9PM ET through Broadway on Demand. The stream will be available globally through the online platform.

Created by Lorenzo Thione and Jay Kuo with a book by Marc Acito, George Takei's Allegiance held its world premiere at San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre in 2012 and later transferred to Broadway where it played a short run.

The live capture of the musical was screened at more than 300 cinemas in the US and Canada and was a bigger commercial success compared to its Broadway production, which didn't manage to last long on Broadway. The musical is also available as a standalone DVD and as a special collector's package.
