A Behind-the-Scenes Look at ‘Allegiance’ Coming to Theaters in December

In its annual return to screens around the anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, Fathom Events is bringing George Takei’s moving Broadway musical “Allegiance,” also starring Tony Award winner Lea Salonga (“Miss Saigon,” “Mulan”) and Telly Leung (“Godspell,” “Glee”), backto cinemas nationwide for an encore event on Dec. 11.

In addition to the film of the original Broadway production, Fathom Events is premiering a new documentary, “Allegiance to Broadway: The Dream. The Story. The Journey of a Musical” by director/filmmaker Greg Vander Veer on Dec. 4, to give audiences an inside look into the making of “Allegiance.”

Even though it’s been more than two years since “Allegiance” closed on Broadway, through the past special screenings across the globe (as well as the stage run in L.A. earlier this year) the show continues to reach new audiences, and is, in fact, more popular than ever, with a DVD release in the works.
