Julia Knitel shows us what it’s like to do a double-duty day at the Acorn Theatre.
Follow cast member Julia Knitel, who plays Barbara in A Letter to Harvey Milk Off-Broadway, through a two-show day at Theatre Row’s Acorn Theatre. Set in San Francisco in the 1980s, the story follows two unlikely people brought together by a letter penned to Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected politician in California.

The new musical also stars Adam Heller (It Shoulda Been You, Elf, Caroline or Change) alongside Knitel (Beautiful, Bye Bye Birdie). Heller plays a widower and retired kosher butcher who finds an unexpected alliance with Barbara (Knitel), a young lesbian teacher at the senior center. The musical, which began performances February 1, deals with issues of friendship, grief, and self-acceptance.
