A Letter to Harvey Milk

 



A new musical set in San Francisco in 1986 that follows two unlikely people brought together by a letter penned to Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected politician in California.

From the producers: San Francisco. 1986. What could Harry, an amiable but lonely retired kosher butcher have in common with Barbara, his young lesbian writing teacher at the senior center? Is it enough to bridge the divide? When Harry fulfills a writing assignment to compose a letter to someone from his past who’s dead, he writes not to his late wife Frannie, but to Harvey Milk, the first openly gay political leader in California. Barbara is stunned. Harry's letter evokes life-changing revelations that neither could have foreseen. This musical - with its soaring score and deeply-felt, surprisingly funny lyrics - deals with issues of friendship and loss, the grip of the past, and the hard-won acceptance set in motion by the most unexpected people.

"A Letter to Harvey Milk" is based on the short story of the same title by Lesléa Newman. As part of the 2012 New York Musical Theatre Festival, the musical won five awards, including Most Promising Musical. Here's a pre-run public performance of a song from the musical at Ben's Kosher Deli in NYC:



Adam Heller ("It Shoulda Been You," "Elf," "Caroline or Change") and Julia Knitel ("Beautiful," "Bye Bye Birdie") lead a cast that includes Michael Bartoli, Jeremy Greenbaum, Aury Krebs, CJ Pawlikowski and Cheryl Stern.
