Oh My: Backstage at Allegiance with George Takei
One of our district managers had a letter from one of our employees as follows:
Janese and I were talking one day about this new Broadway show called Allegiance and how we both planned to go. She informed me her cousin works for George Takei, the inspiration and star of the show. She planned to gift him a Pendleton blanket, since sharing his story was courageous. I thought this was a wonderful gesture! We ended up going yesterday, and when we met Mr. Takei, he said to me “You work for Pendleton? I wear their shirts and love them!” He thanked Janese for the beautiful blanket, and said he would take it to his house in Arizona. He is a gracious, talented star, and a Pendleton fan!
We are great fans of Mr. Takei around here, from his days on Star Trek as Mr. Sulu, to his current incarnation as King of Facebook and Broadway star. So enjoy some starry-eyed fan moments, thanks to Kris!
