Lea Salonga and George Takei in a scene from “Allegiance.”

AARP Theater presents “Allegiance” on Sunday, Nov. 12, at 4 p.m. PT.

Inspired by the true-life experience of its star, George Takei, the musical “Allegiance” follows one family’s experience during the period following the bombing of Pearl Harbor when approximately 120,000 Japanese Americans were forced from their homes and into concentration camps. Their loyalty was questioned, their freedom taken away, but their spirit could never be broken. 

Filmed at the Longacre Theatre in New York City in January 2016. Directed by Lorenzo Thione and writtenby Thione, Jay Kuo and Mark Acito. Cast includes Lea Salonga and Telly Leung. Run time: 130 minutes. Closed captions available. (Note: You will not be able to pause or rewind.)
