Takei will discuss his personal story behind the show — when he was a child, he and his family were forced from their Los Angeles home into an internment camp for Japanese Americans. The "security measure" during Word War II placed them thousands of miles away in the swamps of Arkansas. 

Tickets are priced from $32 and can be purchased here.

92Y is hosting a series of theatre-related intimate Q&A's during the fall season. 

On Oct. 12 two-time Tony winner and star of Chicago James Naughton will talk theatre with playwright Tony Vellela. This will be followed Oct. 19 with a conversation between Rita Moreno and Gloria and Emilio Estefan, who are long-time friends with Moreno. The Estefans will be discussing their upcoming Broadway musical, their marriage and more. Tickets for both events are from $32.

In November 92Y invites two-time Tony winner and Producers star Nathan Lane to open up about his life and career; and in December,  "Transparent" star Judith Light joins the line-up in a discussion about her stage and screen career. Ticket prices start from $37 and $32, respectively.
