The New York Times

"There is no lack of cheese, God knows, in musicals. Worthiness is also plentiful — and sometimes more off-putting. Still, until “Trevor” opened on Wednesday at Stage 42, I’d seldom encountered, outside of after-school specials, the cheesy-but-worthy combo, a seemingly impossible platter that’s almost as righteous in the world as it is wrong in the theater."

Time Out New York

"The familiar Ross hits that punctuate the score, including “Endless Love” and the theme from Mahogany, have the unfortunate effect of upstaging the musical’s serviceable original songs, whose tunes are fine delivery systems for the lyrics but rarely catch strong melodic wind. But the singer’s appearances, in amusing costumes by Mara Blumenfeld, pump up the nostalgia factor and give the show a valuable lift of fantasy."

"that’s where Trevor: The Musical pulls off its most amazing trick: It doesn’t drop the burden of expectations, exactly, and it certainly doesn’t kick it off the stage when no one’s looking. Rather, the big-hearted pop musical widens itself to encompass its big-hearted message, persevering, like Trevor himself, over some rough patches with a blend of musical theater optimism, drama club earnestness and a delightfully catchy blend of new tunes mixed in with classics."

"An earnest and well-acted but only sometimes satisfying production...The show’s saving grace is Trevor himself, a lovable and sympathetic survivor — an "everyoutlier" you root for no matter what."

"Trevor does conclude with an ending that seems a little too tidy and unrealistic: People rarely change their thinking as quickly as the parents and students do here. But to stress that aspect of the story is to miss the larger point."

A show that, like its title character, is a mass of conflicting impulses…Even musical theatre fans who have attended The Prom and who know why everyone's talking about Jamie may find something novel in Dan Collins' book. But the show would be much better off if it could settle on a surer tone.

"if you remember your young adolescent years as a physical, emotional, and social roller coaster ride, or if there is a child in your life who is going through a rough patch (or who could stand to learn something about empathy), then do yourself and them a favor by heading out to Stage 42, where this warm-hearted and engaging musical opened tonight."

New York Stage Review
November 10th, 2021

"For the Trevor advent, we also have to thank the increasing belief abroad in the musical theater community that any play or movie ever made is fodder for musicalization. I’m not going to insist the contention is wrong. It seems to me that if the right inspired people apply themselves to a property, they can produce something memorable. Sorry to say that nowhere near enough inspiration came to Dan Collins and Julianne Wick Davis."
