Part choral work, part theater piece, I Am Anne Hutchinson / I Am Harvey Milk is an emotional, musical celebration of two American icons.
I Am Harvey Milk is the story of the civil rights icon's life from boyhood through his tenure as the first openly gay man to hold public office in California, to his assassination. Grammy and Tony Award-nominated composer Andrew Lippa tells the tale through soaring melodies and beautiful lyrics.
Now for the first time ever, I Am Harvey Milk will be presented along with the world premiere of Lippa's newest work, I Am Anne Hutchinson. Hutchinson is viewed by many as the mother of women's rights and religious tolerance in America. In 1637, the Massachusetts Bay Colony tried her for insubordination to the established patriarchal church for the "sin" of forming women's study groups. While she was branded a radical, like Milk centuries later, her tragic end only strengthened her legend, furthering her cause of women's independence and pursuit of spiritual grace.
Join Broadway superstar Kristin Chenoweth and Andrew Lippa for this spectacular celebration of human rights activists and power in believing in yourself.
