Jonathan Ritter Opens Tonight In New Harvey Milk Musical, HERE TO RECRUIT YOUJonathan Ritter Opens Tonight In New Harvey Milk Musical, HERE TO RECRUIT YOU
by BWW News Desk - Jul 18, 2019

Jonathan Ritter ('Wicked,' 'Finding Neverland,' and 'Sweet Charity') portrays Harvey Milk in HERE TO RECRUIT YOU, a new play with music highlighting the little-known theatrical career of the gay political icon. Prior to becoming California's first openly-gay elected official, Harvey Milk lived - and loved - among a group of downtown bohemian artists on the verge of re-defining the Broadway musical. It was a time (the 1960s) and place (New York City) that informed his politics and inspired his activism. Beginning in 1964, HERE TO RECRUIT YOU chronicles Milk's quest to find love, success, and a purpose in life as he transitions from Wall Street businessman to Broadway producer and, finally, to a celebrated politician whose life was cut short by an assassin's bullet.
