Special Fathom Features: Back by popular demand - experience George Takei’s Broadway musical on the big screen featuring an exclusive intro from Takei and bonus content from show insiders after the feature presentation.
Fathom Events and Sing Out, Louise! Productions are excited to bring George Takei’s profound work, Allegiance: The Broadway Musical on the Big Screen, back to select cinemas nationwide for a special encore event on Sunday, February 19 – the Japanese American Day of Remembrance, and 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066 which gave way to the internment of Japanese Americans.
Straight from its Broadway run and inspired by the true-life experience of its star George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes), Allegiance follows one family’s extraordinary journey in this untold American story. Their loyalty was questioned, their freedom taken away, but their spirit could never be broken. Rejoice in one family’s triumphant story of hope, love, and forgiveness in this groundbreaking musical.
Inspired by true events, Allegiance is the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the events of Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but his sister, Kei, fiercely protests the government’s treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves. Legendary performer George Takei, who was himself an internee as a child, stars alongside Tony Award® winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Mulan) in this enthralling and epic new musical.
