When: Ongoing until Sunday, October 28, 2012

Where: The Old Globe Theatre

 Description: In its world premiere at the Old Globe, Allegiance attempts to tell the epic story of Japanese American internment in WWII. The subject’s as huge as it is vital. Right now it’s an “important” musical, but needs work to become a good one. One way to imagine what it needs is to take away its spectacular cast: iconic George Takei, Paul Nakauchi, Michael K. Lee, young, engaging Telly Leung (whose character undergoes extreme disillusionment), and the amazing Lea Salonga, whose singing makes an underwritten role unforgettable. These and other performers fill in many a gap and add serrations to Jay Kuo’s often predictable songs and a book that takes at least a half an hour to find its way.




When: Ongoing until Sunday, October 28, 2012

Where: Pacific Southwest Railway Museum
