News   Icons Come Together As Lea Salonga and George Takei Offer a Gripping Sneak Peek at Broadway's Allegiance!
 
Lea Salonga, George Takei and the cast of Allegiance met the press and offered a sneak peek on Sep. 29. The musical is scheduled to begin previews Oct. 6 at the Longacre Theatre prior to an official opening Nov. 8.

Allegiance has a book by Marc Acito with music and lyrics by Jay Kuo. Helming the production is Olivier Award nominee Stafford Arima.

Allegiance, which is inspired by Takei’s true childhood experiences, is described as such: "Traversing the lush California heartland, the windswept prairies of Wyoming and the battlefields of war-torn Europe, Allegiance tells the epic multi-generational tale of deep family loyalty, romance, humor, optimism and unparalleled heroism in the face of fear and prejudice against Japanese-Americans during World War II and beyond."

Lea Salonga won Tony and Olivier Awards for her performance in Miss Saigon. She was the first Asian to play Eponine in Les Misérables on Broadway and returned to the show as Fantine in the 2006 revival. Salonga, also seen on Broadway in the revival of Flower Drum Song, garnered a Craig Noel nomination for Outstanding Featured Performance in the musical Allegiance at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego.
