On Friday, May 4th The SpeakEasy Stage Company will open with their fifth and final production of their 2017 / 2018 season, ALLEGIANCE.
Inspired by the true childhood experience of TV/film actor and social media icon George Takei (Mr. Sulu on Star Trek), ALLEGIANCE tells the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans were forced to leave their homes following the events at Pearl Harbor.
This show is an uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit. It follows the Kimura family as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves. Be sure to check out this show. You’ll find it difficult to take your eyes off of the very handsome actor Sam Tanabe who you can also follow on Twitter at, @tanablems.
May 4 – June 2
