Allegiance: a new musical

Yesterday, I went to a staged reading of Allegiance with Tursh and Sora. It featured not only Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Les Miserables) & George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes), but also Enrico Rodriguez, Mike Hagiwara,Tamlyn Tomita, Jose Llana, James Synder, and the stars of East West Players' production of The Last Five Years: Michael Lee & Jennifer Paz. Although they performed less than half of all the scenes, I felt so attached to each of the characters in the story. They said that this work would return to Los Angeles after it is further developed, and I CAN'T WAIT!
Allegiance tells the story of a Japanese American family during the Japanese internment during WWII... It revealed a lot about the internment that I didn't know before... and probably never would have known if I hadn't watched this musical.

Anyways, I'm back at home again and my next project is to make an apron. I've never made anything larger than my usual pouches before so it'll be a new experience! Oh and sorry I STILL haven't posted up a picture of the completed Wonder Girls pouches yet...
