Beloved TV icon and social media star George Takei will also be on hand for a special appearance, and the event will offer fans the opportunity to win tickets to the show and win special prizes in addition to photo ops with the stars. All fans are welcome to attend.

Allegiance illuminates one of American history’s lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura (Takei), transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self (Telly Leung) and his sister Kei (Salonga) fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family, and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. An epic story told with great intimacy, Allegiance explores the ties that bind us, the struggle to persevere, and the overwhelming power of forgiveness and, most especially, love.

Performances are at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street) . Call for tickets.
