Allegiance
"At a time when echoes of the internment ring once again far too loud in our political discourse, there's never been a better moment for the story of Allegiance to find new audiences. It is a true testament to the power and the relevance of this story that so many people attended its premiere in December, and it is only appropriate that even more people will be able to witness it on such an important day as February 19, 2017. The Day of Remembrance is a day of commemoration, of reflection, and of learning, and I hope Allegiance can play an important role in its celebration, this year, and for many years to come."

--George Takei

GFBNEC Board of Governor George Takei has announced a special one-day showing of the musical Allegiance in theaters across the country on February 19, the date marking the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. Tickets are selling quickly for this repeat screening after its cinematic premiere showing last December resulting in the highest grossing one-night Broadway musical event for the entertainment company, Fathom Events. Please visit www.allegiancemusical.com to see theatres near you and to purchase your tickets.

"George Takei's Allegiance: The Broadway Musical On The Big Screen" will begin with an exclusive introduction from Takei. After the feature, audiences will also be treated to behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creators.
