The Japanese have traditionally used squares of fabric called furoshiki to bundle clothes at public baths and carry purchases. They still use furoshiki to wrap presents and lend gifts a special flair. Just in time for the holidays, you can learn to do the same.
Reservations are required by December 1. Notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (520) 303-3945 to say you’ll attend.
“Allegiance tells the story of one family’s extraordinary journey in a troubling time of a nation at war. A mysterious envelope leads Sam Kimura (Takei) back 60 years to a time when he (played as a young man by Telly Leung — Godspell, “Glee”) and his sister Kei (Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga–Miss Saigon, Mulan) strive to save their family from the wrongful imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Sam enlists in the army to prove his family’s loyalty, while Kei joins the draft resisters fighting for the rights of their people. Their paths take them from the lush farmlands of California to the wastelands of Wyoming to the battlefields of Europe, and their divided loyalties threaten to tear them apart forever. But as long-lost memories are relived and a new perspective is gained, Sam finds that it is never too late to forgive and experience the redemptive power of love.
Audiences across America and beyond have continued to embrace the power of Allegiance, its story and its score in a way that has surpassed all our expectations,” said Allegiance co-creator and producer Lorenzo Thione. “Fans have breathed new life into the show, coming out to movie theaters en masse, and celebrating its importance, and we are thankful for such a passionate following. We will continue to bring Allegiance to fans across the globe and look forward to many more thousand people who will get a chance to see it for the first time this December 7.”
