A Letter To Harvey Milk, is a tale of friendship and loss, which explores the grip of the past and the hard-won acceptance set in motion by the most unexpected people.
San Francisco. 1986. When Harry, an amiable but intensely lonely retired kosher butcher and widower, decides on impulse to take a writing class at the local senior center, he finds an unexpected alliance with Barbara, a young lesbian writing teacher.
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 and helps to forge an unlikely friendship that neither could have foreseen.

“Surprisingly fierce little musical. Brimming with warmth and clandestine power, this is one of those musicals that stows away in your heart without you even noticing.” – Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania
“A Letter to Harvey Milk is one of those rare musicals that dares to confront both LGBTQ history and Jewish history. And it does so with visceral wit, grace, and a full heart.” – David Kennerley, Gay City News
“Four Stars! While Fiddler on the Roof might be the quintessential Jewish musical, A Letter to Harvey Milk feels like the essence of American Judaism. The corny jokes, the raspy Yiddish, the allusions to holidays and stories – felt like home, as a Jewish American myself. But the musical is not just the clichés or the humor; instead, it shines a light on Judaism and homosexuality, on loss and on loneliness. A Letter to Harvey Milk is a moving exploration of Judaism and the trauma that comes from publicly being who you are.” – Becca Kaplan, Plays To See
