About Midnight at the Never Get:

Midnight at the Never Get tells the story of singer Trevor Copeland and songwriter Arthur Brightman who have the perfect New York romance, and that’s swell. In 1965, it’s also against the law. So in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight—a nightclub act where Trevor sings Arthur’s love songs with their male pronouns intact. But, as the lovers hurtle towards the end of the decade, they find themselves caught in a passion they can’t control and a political revolution they don’t understand. Featuring a seductive score inspired by the Great American Songbook, Midnight at the Never Get is a sultry meditation on identity, memory, and enduring romance.
