Off-Broadway Harvey Milk musical puts gay Jewish pride onstage | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

In the Off-Broadway musical “A Letter to Harvey Milk,” the slain San Francisco supervisor and community leader becomes not just a symbol of gay liberation, but of Jewish pride as well. At a time when the issue of gender politics is part of the American cultural conversation, the play — originally produced in 2012 — seems to have found its moment once again.

Retro Productions presents the World Premiere of Gina Femia play WE ARE A MASTERPIECE

Retro Productions presents the World Premiere of Gina Femia play WE ARE A MASTERPIECE | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

Retro Productions, who was recently awarded the prestigious Caffe Cino Fellowship Award at the New York Innovative Theatre Awards (NYIT), follows up their hit 2017 season with the World Premiere of Gina Femia’s play, We Are A Masterpiece. The production is directed by Retro company member, DeLisa M. White. We Are A Masterpiece runs April 7 – 21 at the 14th Street Y.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

We Are a Masterpiece takes place at the dawn of the AIDS crisis, when the disease was still a mystery. In Kalamazoo, Michigan, Joan, a no-nonsense nurse, becomes a sort of fairy godmother to the town’s gay community when no one else will step up to care for them as they die one by one. She becomes their friend, their mother, their sister, as they navigate life and death with this new plague; caring for them, taking in John – an artist who becomes like a son to her, burying the dead on her property. Out of the ashes of their collective lives, lifelong bonds are forged and beauty is found even at the darkest of moments.
