Kristin Chenoweth is starring in the New York premiere of I Am Harvey Milk

From TheaterMania:

Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked) will star alongside composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (Big Fish) in the New York premiere of Lippa's choral work I Am Harvey Milk on October 6 at Avery Fisher Hall, producers Bruce Cohen, Robb Nanus, Jessica Leventhal, Bruce Robert Harris, and Jack W. Batman have announced.

...

The piece, which is described as "part choral work, part theater piece," traces the life of gay rights activist Milk from boyhood through his political career and eventually to his assassination in 1978. Proceeds from the event will be used to create the Harvey Milk Arts Fund at the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which will provide arts education and resources to the students at Harvey Milk High School and other at-risk youth that benefit from HMI's services.

That's definitely a must-see!
