Based on the Academy Award winning short film, Trevor The Musical is set in the early 80s and follows the journey of young Trevor Nelson as he navigates adolescence.
Our Social Producer Ricky Cornish had a chat with both the lead actor and the director just before the big opening night. Director Marc Bruni opened up on the musical's ability to relate to everyone.
"Anyone who's been through middle school and come out the other side can relate to the various struggles that the characters go through," Bruni said.
Throughout the musical, Trevor comes to terms with his true identity and delicate topics are perfectly balanced with joyful moments.
"It's simultaneously so emotional, but also so joyous," Bruni said.
The play's already receiving critical praise and Holden William Hagelberger, who plays Trevor in the musical, is extremely grateful for the possibility to share this project with the world.
"We're changing lives," Hagelberger said.
Furthermore, our correspondent Stephen Walker talked with the stars on the red carpet of the premiere. Actress Eve Plumb stated that we all need inspiring stories, especially during these complicated times.
"I think we're all looking for happy stories," Eve Plumb said.
