A Letter to Harvey Milk - Heartfelt Musical About Friendship, Loss & Acceptance
When Harry, a lonely retiree and former kosher butcher, meets Barbara, a young lesbian teaching his writing class at a senior center in San Francisco, it seems like the two of them have next to nothing in common. But when Barbara assigns the class to write a letter to a person from the past who is no longer alive, she's shocked to find that rather than write to his deceased wife, Harry has composed a letter to Harvey Milk -- California's first openly gay political leader, assassinated only a few years earlier. Harry's letter evokes life-changing revelations for both of them, and he and Barbara find themselves developing the unlikeliest of friendships. With a soaring score and heartfelt, hilarious lyrics, "A Letter to Harvey Milk" at New York's Acorn Theatre is an inspiring musical about friendship, loss and finding acceptance in unlikely places.
