S3 Ep1: Trevor Dion Nicholas, George Washington in Hamilton & Genie in Disney's Aladdin
We're back for a "virtual" series of In The Frame! Our first guest is Trevor Dion Nicholas who was playing George Washington in the West End production of Hamilton (Victoria Palace) before theatres closed.
Trevor originated the role of Genie in the West End production of Disney's Aladdin, having been a standby for the role on Broadway. He played Genie for the duration of the London run, taking a short break to play the role on the US tour. He was a judge on All Star Musicals (ITV) and hosted 2019's Magic at the Musicals (Royal Albert Hall).
After making his professional debut in Big River (US tour), Trevor appeared in US regional productions of The Wiz, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Ragtime, The Little Mermaid, The Wizard of Oz, Into the Woods, Little Shop of Horrors, Rent, The Exonerated and This is the Life.
Trevor is also the songwriter and primary vocalist for the original Alternative Indie Soul band Neighborhood Goliath.
In this episode, Trevor discusses his path to Broadway, what it was like to say goodbye to Aladdin and his favourite number to perform in Hamilton... plus lots more!
