WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From director Noah Himmelstein, and starring composer Andrew Lippa (Big Fish) and Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked), I Am Harvey Milk chronicles the story of Harvey Milk's life – from boyhood to his rise as the first openly gay man to hold public office in California to his assassination. Part choral work, part theater piece, I Am Harvey Milk is an emotional celebration of an American icon.
I Am Harvey Milk was commissioned by the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, along with Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus, Dayton Gay Men's Chorus, Denver Gay Men's Chorus, Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles, Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus, and Heartland Men's Chorus. Since its premiere, the piece has been made available to choruses to perform from coast to coast.
