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 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.
