A Letter to Harvey Milk Tickets
About A Letter to Harvey Milk - Off Broadway
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 was proud to be a selection of the New York Musical Theatre Festival's 2012 Next Link Project and is based on the short story of the same titled by Lesléa Newman. The musical features lyrics by Ellen M. Schwartz, with additional lyrics by Cheryl Stern, music by Laura I. Kramer, book by Jerry James, Schwartz, Stern and Kramer. Evan Pappas directs.
