Letter from Executive Director of AALDEF Margaret Fung:
Please join us on Thursday, Oct. 29 for a special benefit preview of George Takei’s new musical on Broadway, Allegiance. George will join us for a Q&A after the performance, so you don’t want to miss this wonderful AALDEF event!
Allegiance is a multi-generational tale about family, freedom, love, and loss as Japanese Americans were incarcerated in camps during World War II. It is inspired by the true-life experience of its star, George Takei, the recipient of AALDEF’s 1992 Justice in Action award and a beloved actor (Star Trek), social justice activist, and social media icon. The musical also features Tony Award winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Les Miserables) and Telly Leung (Rent, Glee). Allegiance had its premiere in 2012 at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. It will be the first time in thirteen years that an Asian-led cast has been on Broadway since the revival of Flower Drum Song.
Join us to catch a sneak peek of this new Broadway show before it opens on November 8. We have a limited number of orchestra and front mezzanine seats at a specially discounted price of $125 per ticket (box office price $142). Rear mezzanine and balcony tickets can also be purchased for $75 and $65.
