NEW YORK (AP) — If you weren't able to catch George Takei's musical "Allegiance" on Broadway, here's another chance — at your local movie theater.

Fathom Events will broadcast a digital recording of the show to movie houses nationwide on Dec. 13.

"Allegiance," based on Takei's memories of being forced into a Wyoming internment during World War II, is a multigenerational tale with two love stories. It co-stars Lea Salonga, Telly Leung and Takei.

The show had a premiere in 2012 at the Old Globe in San Diego and, when it opened in New York on Oct. 6, marked the first Asian-led cast of a musical on Broadway in more than a decade. It closed after 150 performances.
