We were proud to present our next Rialto Recommends selection ALLEGIANCE, the captured live version of the hit Broadway musical, on our screens back in 2017. In light of current events it seems important to revisit this story. ALLEGIANCE illuminates one of American history's lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura (George Takei), transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self (Telly Leung, Godspell, "Glee") and his sister Kei (Tony Award®-winner Lea Salonga, Miss Saigon, Mulan) fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. An important story told with great resonance and intimacy, ALLEGIANCE explores the ties that bind us, the struggle to persevere and the overwhelming power of forgiveness and, most especially, love. Creator and star George Takei said recently "I'm absolutely thrilled that the release of ALLEGIANCE on BroadwayHD will allow even more audiences to experience this vital piece of theater. Telling the story of the Japanese American internment, which my family and I experienced first hand, has been my life's work. ALLEGIANCE truly is my legacy, and I'm so grateful that it has given me the opportunity to share our history in such a compelling and beautiful way." ALLEGIANCE is streaming exclusively on BroadwayHD. To find out more, to subscribe or to sign-up for a seven day free trial of BroadwayHD follow the link below.
