A filmed version of the off-Broadway musical will hit the popular streaming service on June 24.
It was announced today that the filmed version of the off-Broadway stage production Trevor: The Musical will stream exclusively on Disney Plus, debuting Friday, June 24.
Trevor: The Musical opened off-Broadway at Stage 42 in the fall of 2021, featuring 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 story 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.
