NEW YORK (AP) — A concert piece about gay rights icon Harvey Milk by Tony Award nominee Andrew Lippa is coming to New York and it is bringing Kristin Chenoweth with it.

Producers said Thursday that "I Am Harvey Milk" will have its New York premiere on Oct. 6 at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall as part of a one-night-only benefit to help provide arts education for at-risk youth.

Lippa, who wrote the music and lyrics for Broadway's "The Addams Family" and "Big Fish," will play Milk in the work, which is part choral and part theater. He and Chenoweth will be backed by the Orchestra of St. Luke's and introduce the 120-member All Star Broadway Men's Chorus.
