Meet Us There! Member’s Trip: Allegiance 

Tickets $85

Meet in the South End for dinner and a show! We’ll start with tapas at Barcelona, then walk to the Boston Center for the Arts to attend SpeakEasy Stage Company’s production of Allegiance. Inspired by the true childhood 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 are forced to leave their homes following the events of Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but sister Kei fiercely protests the government’s treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves.
