Imprisoned as a child in the United States for being of Japanese origin, he campaigns for gay and immigrant rights. He brings his award-winning broadway musical ‘Allegiance’ to London, which is inspired by his own memories of growing up in a Japanese internment camp.

George joins Krishnan to tell his extraordinary story, from childhood to stardom and his mission to raise awareness about his life.
