George Takei fans and Broadway aficionados who couldn't make it to the Longacre Theater in New York City during Allegiance's run from late 2015 to early 2016 will have one more chance to see the musical, which was inspired by the Star Trek legend's real-life experiences. Fathom Events will beam George Takei’s Allegiance: The Broadway Musical On The Big Screen to movie theaters nationwide for one night on Tuesday, December 13 at 7:30 p.m. local time. The evening will kick off with an exclusive introduction by Takei and then shift directly into the show's presentation. Further, audiences will enjoy special behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creators. The show itself, which featured Takei in two roles, and co-starred Lea Salonga and Telly Leung, shares the moving story of the Kimura family, who, much like Takei’s own family, had their lives upended by the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII.
Mark the date: November 11, as that's when tickets for George Takei’s Allegiance: The Broadway Musical On The Big Screen will go on sale. Visiting www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.
