The Broadway show I am most interested in seeing this season is the musical ALLEGIANCE.
The show stars George Takei of Star Trek fame as his own father and is about one of the most shameful periods in American history: the internment of the Japanese during World War II. Of the thousands Japanese that were sent away to camps on suspicion of being “enemy agents” working for the Emperor, seventy percent (70%) were, in actuality, American-born. George Takei was one of them.
