Telly Leung, actor

Leung will go from his current engagement on Broadway in "Godspell" to an ambitious and risky project taking shape at San Diego's Old Globe: a musical about the internment of Japanese American citizens during World War II. In "Allegiance," written by Jay Kuo and Lorenzo Thione, Leung plays a young man (George Takei of "Star Trek" plays the character later in life and Lea Salonga is another star) forced into the Heart Mountain camp in Wyoming, where he becomes a writer for the official camp newspaper who experiences tangled loyalties. Leung may be familiar to sharp-eyed "Glee" fans -- he is a member of the Warblers, the show choir at the private school the characters of Kurt and Blaine attended in the second season. He also played Angel in the production of "Rent" that Neil Patrick Harris directed at the Hollywood Bowl in 2010.<br>
