Join BAAFF, SpeakEasy Stage Company, and Boston Public Library to welcome actor, icon, and social media guru George Takei, former BAAFF 2014 Guest for To Be Takei and best known as "Mr. Sulu" on TV's Star Trek, for a candid conversation about the hit Broadway musical Allegiance, based on his childhood experience during World War II. There will also be a performance by the cast of SpeakEasy Stage Company's production of Allegiance (New England Premiere).
As part of an hour-long Q&A, Mr. Takei will talk about his own internment camp experience, share how his story became the basis for a hit Broadway show, and offer thoughts on the timely lessons of this cautionary tale.
