Lea Salonga & Telly Leung in 'Allegiance'
'Allegiance' extends one week at the Old Globe.

The new musical Allegiance, starring Lea Salonga, Telly Leung and George Takei, will now play San Diego’s Old Globe through October 28. The world premiere production was originally set to close on October 21. Directed by Stafford Arima, Allegiance features music and lyrics by Jay Kuo and a book by Kuo and Lorenzo Thione. No word yet on if and when the musical will transfer to Broadway.

Allegiance is the story of family, love and patriotism set during the Japanese-American internment of World War II. The musical takes audiences on a journey through a watershed event in U.S. history as seen through the eyes of one American family. On the 60th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, a meeting with a young journalist forces WWII veteran Sam Otsuka (Takei) to remember his family’s relocation from their California farm to the Heart Mountain internment camp. As they struggle to adjust to their new home, young Sam (Leung) and his sister Kei (Salonga) find themselves torn between loyalty to their family and allegiance to their country.
