On today’s episode of The Salisha Show, host Salisha Thomas sits down with two of the producers of the new off-Broadway show Trevor the Musical: Josie Bray and John Ambrosino. John and Josie recall transitioning from artists to producers and how they became a business partnership in addition to lifelong friends.
