First look production shots have been released for the current UK premiere of George Takei's Allegiance.

Inspired by Takei's real-life childhood experiences – from time spent in an internment camp during the Second World War, through to years in Los Angeles after 1945 – the musical was seen on Broadway from 2015 to 2016 after a world premiere in San Diego in 2012. It has a book by Marc Acito, Jay Kuo and Lorenzo Thione with music and lyrics by Kuo.

Led by Takei, Telly Leung and Aynrand Ferrer, the cast also features Iroy Abesamis, Mark Anderson, Masashi Fujimoto, Megan Gardiner, Raiko Gohara, Eu Jin Hwang, Hana Ichijo, Misa Koide, Patrick Munday, Rachel Jayne Picar, Sario Solomon, Joy Tan and Iverson Yabut.
