Based on an original story by James Lecesne and the 1994 Academy Award-winning short film, "Trevor," this new musical adaptation features a book and lyrics by Dan Collins and music by Julianne Wick Davis. The short film, "Trevor," inspired The Trevor Project, a crisis intervention and suicide prevention organization focused on saving LGBTQ lives.

Trevor received its world premiere at Writers Theater in Chicago on August 9, 2017, in collaboration with A.B. & W. Productions through the Literary Development Initiative. The musical went on to win a Jeff Award for 'Best New Work,' celebrating theatre in the Chicago area.

The New York premiere is produced by Roy Furman, John Ambrosino, Josie Bray, and Mark Woods.
