Allegiance is inspired by the personal experiences of George Takei (who also starred in the original production), telling the story of the Kimura family, Japanese Americans who were interned during World War II.


The musical explores themes of love, family, and loyalty against the backdrop of this dark period in American history.

As young Sammy Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism, he faces deep conflicts between his allegiance to his family and to his country, highlighting the challenges and injustices faced by Japanese American citizens during the war.

Allegiance brings to light a significant yet often overlooked chapter of American history, emphasizing the resilience and strength of the human spirit.
