Producers Roy Furman and A.B. & W. Productions have announced that Trevor: The Musical will open its New York premiere in April 2020 at Stage 42, most recently home to the Yiddish production of Fiddler on the Roof.
Trevor: The Musical features a book and lyrics by Dan Collins (Southern Comfort) and music by Julianne Wick Davis (Southern Comfort). The show is based on an original story by James Lecesne and the Academy Award-winning short film Trevor, directed by Peggy Rajski and produced by Randy Stone, with an original screenplay by Lecesne. Choreography is by Joshua Prince (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and direction is by Marc Bruni (Beautiful: The Carol King Musical).
The musical follows 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 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.
The world premiere of Trevor: The Musical was presented by Chicago's Writers Theatre in a special agreement with A.B. & W. Productions through the Literary Development Initiative.
Casting for the 19 roles, ticket information, and additional details for Trevor: The Musical will be announced soon.
