Star Trek actor George Takei is to premiere the new musical he helped inspire in California next year (12).
Allegiance will open the Old Globe's 2012-13 Winter Season in San Diego.
Jay Kuo created the production after meeting Takei and learning about his experiences in an American internment camp for Japanese citizens during World War II.
Tony Award-winning actress Lea Salonga will lead the cast with Takei and Telly Leung.
