Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything.

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment

Why See A Letter to Harvey Milk?

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.
