Old Globe pledges ‘Allegiance’

Two new musicals in theater's 2012-13 season

San Diego’s Old Globe Theater has filled out its 2012-13 season, launching with new tuner “Allegiance” starring George Takei.

The musical with songs by Jay Kuo and book by Kuo and Lorenzo Thione, which has been in development for a few years now, centers on a family’s experiences during the Japanese-American internment during WWII. Stafford Arima (“Carrie”) directs a cast that also includes Lea Salonga and Telly Leung.

Another new tuner, “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” also joins the slate. The comedy by Robert L. Freedman and Steven Lutvak, about a man who decides to murder the seven people ahead of him in line for an inheritance, is a co-production with Hartford Stage, where the Darko Tresnjak-helmed production will play this fall prior to its spring run in San Diego.

Other shows in the Old Globe lineup includes Rialto vets “Good People” and “Other Desert Cities” as well as Off Broadway alums “The Brothers Size” and “Be a Good Little Widow.” “Pygmalion,” “A Doll’s House” and the annual holiday engagement of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” round out the sked, which kicks off when “Allegiance” begins perfs Sept. 7.
