My Time Now
Act I of Allegiance ends with a wallop from Young Sam, who has just learned devastating news. In this early version of the Act One closer, after hearing the news, Sam takes the news as a sign that he must now step forward and shine, in a ballad entitled My Time Now. Subsequent iterations of the show led to a repurposing and reconception of the Act One closer, which changed title to Show Me The Way. But this video preserves an archive of the original song, sung by Telly Leung at a screening of the show in NYC, in early 2010.
