BOSTON (AP) — Actor George Takei — best known for his role as Mr. Sulu in the original "Star Trek" — is coming to the Boston Public Library.
On Tuesday, Takei will speak about his experience during World War II spent in U.S. internment camps for Japanese-Americans.
Takei used his family's story to create the Broadway musical "Allegiance."
The show tells the narrative of the fictional Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.
The cast of the SpeakEasy Stage Company's production of Takei's musical will also perform during the event at Rabb Hall at the central library in Copley Square.
Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis after individuals with tickets are seated.
