George Takei, Star Trek’s Mr. Sulu, will appear at the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, MA for a Q&A session after a screening of his biographical movie, “To Be Takei” on November 3rd at 7:00pm.
Jennifer Kroot’s TO BE TAKEI follows Takei and his husband Brad, capturing their day-to-day as they prepare for Takei’s dream project, ALLEGIANCE, a musical based on his harrowing childhood experiences inside a Japanese American internment camp during World War II. Intertwined with this narrative is a look into Takei’s life history, from his rise to fame as helmsman Hikaru Sulu on the iconic television series, STAR TREK, to his advocacy for marriage equality and civil rights across the United States. What emerges is a portrait of an outspoken activist who utilizes wit, whimsy, grace and humor to bring attention to the sorrows of his past and the joys of love and creativity in his present.
