A combination of musical theatre, bright lights, and Diana Ross (in the mind of an imaginative teenager) awaits audiences Off-Broadway. The new musical Trevor opened November 10 at Stage 42, and the reviews are in.
Based on an original story by Celeste Lecesne and Peggy Rajski's Oscar-winning short film, Trevor features a book and lyrics by Dan Collins and music by Julianne Wick Davis with direction by Marc Bruni and choreography by Josh Prince.
Newcomer Holden William Hagelberger stars in the title role as a 13-year-old struggling to navigate his own identity and determine how he fits in a challenging world.
