Allegiance is returning for a one-night only screening by Fathom Events on Sunday, February 19th. This groundbreaking musical was originally screened in a one-night only event in December. Allegiance tells the story of a family of Japanese-American family who is torn apart by the injustices of a Japanese internment camp in World War II. This breathtaking production starts George Takei, Telly Leung, and Lea Salonga, who will be headlining a concert as part of the BYU Bravo Series in April. Allegiance was one of my most powerful theatrical experiences of 2016. The story is timeless and incredibly applicable to the world we live in today. How easy it is to forget the lessons of history. Everyone should see this show!
This screening is of special significance because February 19th is the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, known as the Day of Remembrance, which marked the beginning of the forced relocation and internment of 120,00 Japanese Americans during World War II. There will be three showings in Utah at the Union Heights 16 in Sandy, and the Salt Lake 16 and Sugarhouse Movies 10 in Salt Lake City. Showtime is at 12:55 PM. Purchase your tickets here.
