Curtain Call: 13 Shows That Earned a Standing Ovation in 2014

GMCLA’s performance of I Am Harvey Milk at Disney Hall

Andrew Lippa, composer of such Broadway musicals as The Addams Family and Big Fish, created a one-hour piece that’s equal parts formal musical and staged performance. Starring as the San Francisco gay rights pioneer in performances with the Gay Men’s Chorus Los Angeles, Lippa made a convincing argument that we all are Harvey Milk. This is a tremendous piece of music that deserves to be performed in concert halls around the world.
