Smash fans will be the first ones to tell you, the backstage drama that goes into bringing a new musical to Broadway is absolutely fascinating.
For those suffering from #TeamIvy/#TeamKaren, Bombshell/Hit List withdrawal, relief has finally come in the form of an emotional, interesting, intellectual, and (best of all) true new docuseries Allegiance—Trek to Broadway. The 10-part series premieres exclusively on George Takei’s Facebook page, but we have the first episode below to get you hooked.
The new Broadway musical Allegiance stars Takei, Tony winner Lea Salonga & Telly Leung and is inspired by Takei’s true-life experience in a Japanese internment camp during WWII. The sure-to-make-you-cry musical shows how one family's love, optimism and unparalleled heroism got them through this harrowing time in US history.
Allegiance begins previews at the Longacre Theatre on October 6.
