The New York debut of Trevor: The Musical will open in April 2020 at Stage 42.
Trevor: The Musical is about 13-year-old Trevor, a force of nature with a vivid imagination. As he deals with becoming a teenager, Trevor struggles to navigate his own identity and determine how he fits in a challenging world.
The musical features book and lyrics by Dan Collins, music by Julianne Wick Davis, direction is by Marc Bruni and choreography is by Joshua Prince. Trevor: The Musical is based on an original story by James Lecesne and the Academy Award-winning short film Trevor.
“Trevor the film struck a chord with its powerful narrative and urgent message of optimism,” said producers Roy Furman and John Ambrosino, Josie Bray and Mark Woods of A.B. & W. Productions. “From the exuberant audience response at the Writers Theatre in Glencoe, IL where the musical debuted, we knew we should bring the show to New York.”
The Trevor Project, which was created as a result of the Trevor film, is the nation’s only accredited crisis intervention and suicide prevention organization focused on saving LGBTQ lives.
Casting, ticket information and additional details for Trevor: The Musical will be announced at a later.
