Allegiance has moved from Broadway to London! Based on the personal story of the legendary TV and film star George Takei (of Star Trek fame) and his internment in an American concentration camp during World War II, the musical is currently on at Charing Cross Theatre. (

The Meridian Society is delighted to have the opportunity of inviting co-star Telly Leung, who plays the son of George’s character, to meet us in the middle of his busy schedule. Telly is an American actor, director, singer and songwriter and a strong campaigner for LGBTQ rights. Our society director Peng Wenlan will be holding a conversation with him about his career and ambitions and his role in the musical.
