TREVOR Announces New Off-Broadway Dates
New performance dates for Trevor, the new musical that was in rehearsals ahead of its New York premiere when theaters shut down last spring were announced today.
Trevor will begin performances Monday, October 25, 2021 and open Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at Stage 42. Rehearsals will resume in September and full casting will be announced soon.
Trevor features book and lyrics by Dan Collins (Southern Comfort) and music by Julianne Wick Davis (Southern Comfort). Direction is by Marc Bruni (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and choreography is by Josh Prince (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical). Trevor is based on an original story by Celeste Lecesne and the Academy Award-winning short film, Trevor, directed by Peggy Rajski and produced by Randy Stone and Peggy Rajski, that had an original screenplay by Celeste Lecesne.
The creative team also includes scenic designer Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher – Tony Award); costume designer Mara Blumenfeld (Metamorphoses); lighting designer Peter Kaczorowski (Choir Boy); sound designers Brian Ronan (Mrs. Doubtfire, Tootsie) and Cody Spencer (Tootsie); music director Matt Deitchman (Writers Theatre, Chicago Shakespeare Theatre); orchestrator Greg Pliska (Sylvia); and casting by Tara Rubin Casting (Ain’t Too Proud).
Trevor 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 Trevor Project, founded by Peggy Rajski, Randy Stone and Celeste Lecesne, was created as a result of the Trevor film and is not affiliated with the musical. It is the nation’s only accredited crisis intervention and suicide prevention organization focused on saving LGBTQ lives. www.TheTrevorProject.org
