Broadway's Allegiance With Lea Salonga Streams Free Globally June 19

If you've missed George Takei's Broadway production of Allegiance starring Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga, here is another chance to stream the musical for free! Allegiance will stream tomorrow, June 19th, through "Broadway at Home".

The capture, which will be available globally, was filmed in 2015 at Broadway's Longacre Theatre. 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.



Broadway's Allegiance will be streaming for free on June 19th all day long starting at 12AM ET through Broadway on Demand. The stream will be available globally through the online platform, which can also be streamed through AirPlay and Chromecast.

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.

If you've missed the free stream, Allegiance will be available for short-term rentals here.

The filmed 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.

In his review for NBC, Robert Kahn said: "“Allegiance” is the new Broadway musical inspired by “Star Trek” alum George Takei’s experience in Japanese internment camps during World War II. It’s a poignant and well-crafted story, with a title that operates on multiple levels. Here, allegiance refers to the loyalty we feel for country. And, obligations we have to family and friends. And finally, truths we live by as individuals—the determination to stand our ground when life sours. All these ideas are woven smartly into the often-stirring drama now at the Longacre Theatre."
