We discussed his current work, I Am Harvey Milk, which is based on the life, work, and assassination of gay activist Harvey Milk. The choral work is set to have its premiere this month with the 300-voice San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, starring Andrew Lippa himself as Harvey Milk along with Tony Award winner Laura Benanti.
Andrew also gave me a SCOOP about his fabulous show, The Wild Party, which I absolutely adore! So listen to the replay if you missed the live show.
