Elbow & Claudio in Measure for Measure (2019)

"Trevor Barrette alternates between punchy physical comedy as Elbow and pained grief as Claudio, charming the audience as both." - Andrew Sawyer, July 18, 2019, Montreal Theatre Hub

"Six of the ten [actors] double in amusing minor roles, particularly Mr Barrette as Constable Elbow, a bumbling official in the spirit of Dogberry from Much Ado About Nothing [...]" - Byron Toben, Westmount Mag


Craig in The History of Sexuality (2017 & 2018)

"The prime acting from the ensemble [...] proceeds to honour the core commitment to authentic storytelling." - Camila Fitzgibbon, August 11, 2018, Montreal Theatre Hub


Brad in Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show (2015)

Flute in A Midsummer Night's Dream (2013)

“Trevor Barrette wins his share of the laughs as the actor Flute, who must play the suicidal Thisby.” - Pat Donnelly, July 12, 2013, Montreal Gazette
