Composer Jay Kuo Librettist Marc Acito, Jay Kuo, and Lorenzo Thione Producer Contra Costa Civic Theatre  [Website] Description A new musical inspired by a true story, Allegiance follows the Kimura family, whose lives are upended after Pearl Harbor when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to abandon their homes and settle in war relocation camps. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, the Kimuras fight between duty and defiance, and as long-lost memories are unlocked, they find it is never too late to recognize the redemptive power of love.
