George Takei is making his London stage debut at age 85.
He is taking his legacy project “Allegiance” to the U.K.
The show will start on January 7, 2023.
It will run for 13 weeks until April 8, 2023.
“Allegiance” was inspired by Takei’s childhood.
After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, he was put in an American concentration camp.
He was born in California, but his parents were Japanese-American immigrants.
In 2019, he called out the anti-Asian sentiment in the media before Pearl Harbor had happened.
“Some were immigrants, but we were Americans born here,” he said.
