Allegiance Lea Salonga and George Takei

Tune-in Alert: Broadway on Demand to Stream Allegiance

Broadway On Demand, the new streaming platform for theater fans, will present the online streaming premiere of Broadway’s Allegiance tomorrow, Friday, May 29.

The much-lauded musical with a book by Marc Acito, Jay Kuo, and Lorenzo Thione with music and lyrics by Kuo opened on Broadway November 8, 2015. Inspired by true events, Allegiance is the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 110,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the events of Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura (Leung) seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but his sister, Kei (Salonga), 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.

The stream will be preceded by a pre-show event, “A Toast to Allegiance,” featuring Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, George Takei, Telly Leung, and other members of the original Broadway company.

The show will stream at 8:00 PM ET for $14.99 on Broadway On Demand, which includes a digital download of the Original Cast Album and an exclusive bonus video.
