I Am Anne Hutchinson - I Am Harvey Milk - Washington, DC (Regional)

I Am Harvey Milk, originally commissioned by the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, weaves the story of Milk's life-from boyhood to his rise as the first openly gay man to hold public office in California, and finally, to his assassination. Andrew Lippa's soaring melodies and lyrics have already sold out houses in Los Angeles's Disney Concert Hall and New York City's Lincoln Center. Now, I Am Harvey Milk makes its Washington, D.C. debut, where so many political opinions, legislative decisions, and, most recently, a landmark Supreme Court ruling, have impacted the LGBT community.



I Am Harvey Milk will be presented alongside the world premiere of Lippa's newest work, I Am Anne Hutchinson. Hutchinson is widely considered the mother of women's rights and religious tolerance in America. In 1637, she was tried for insubordination to the patriarchal church, for the "sin" of forming women's study groups. While she was branded a radical, like Harvey Milk centuries later, her tragic end only strengthened her legend, furthering her cause of women's independence.

I am enormously thrilled that Strathmore took this one on. It's not the kind of event the largely classical venue usually presents and I hope to see more risk-taking in the future. The pieces offer up stories that need to be heard, and there's no denying the music and performers are first rate.

When Andrew Lippa, the Broadway composer, was commissioned by the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus to write I AM HARVEY MILK for its 35th anniversary in 2013, the hour-long work about the assassinated gay rights activist was called an oratorio. While it was a success from the start, people involved already thought it was ready to move on to something bigger. The result is I AM ANNE HUTCHINSON /I AM HARVEY MILK, which has its world premiere on April 23, at the Music Center at Strathmore, in North Bethesda, MD, a Metro ride from Washington, DC, starring Kristin Chenoweth, and composer-librettist Lippa.
