A New Musical

In the eyes of his young writing teacher Barbara, Harry Weinberg isn't the most 'cosmopolitan' of her students. A retired Kosher butcher, he seems reticent about attending the class in the first place, so when he pens a letter to Harvey Milk as part of an assignment, Barbara is more than a little shocked. Over the course of the play, Harry's relationship to the murdered, openly gay major is revealed, in a gentle musical journey that shows our preconceptions of people are sometimes very wide of the mark.

Written by A Letter to Harvey Milk was a finalist for 2012'2 Richard Rodgers Award, and also won five prizes the same year at the New York Musical festival, including Most Promising Musical. This Off-Broadway production is directed by Evan Pappas.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child's authentic Potter but, most importantly, it's new. It's not the movie of the book. It's the real deal, live in front of you, so much better than any film could be.

Three years is a long time for a peppy musical to stay peppy... But gosh darn it if I didn't feel born again all over again!
