Tony, Obie, From Broadway, From Off-Broadway

The Me Nobody Knows is a Tony-nominated and OBIE Award-winning, ground-breaking musical which has been inspiring and touching audiences throughout the world for generations. Within the envelope of a single day, the show poetically examines the aspirations and fears of a multi-racial cast of young people. Inspired by actual writings of students in the New York City Public Schools, the stories are universal, and can be shared by and with all races. The powerful and contemporary score carries and propels each individuals journey. The size of the cast may vary according to the needs of each production.

"The Me Nobody Knows is one of the best musicals on Broadway and unequivocally the most moving, the most poignant. I loved its understanding and compassion, and I felt its pain and yet also its unsentimental determination for hope." - The New York Times

"We have the best rock score in years in the one provided by Gary William Friedman for The Me Nobody Knows, a musical about ghetto children that is so good that if every legislator and slum landlord were to see it - and since it should be seen by everybody, that includes those unsavory professions - it might put an end to ghettos." - New York Magazine

"The Me Nobody Knows is beautiful…lyricist Will Holt, composer Gary William Friedman and director Robert H. Livingston have fashioned a show remarkable for its intelligence, insight and emotional force." - Newsweek

"Rejoice…Gary William Friedman…and everyone else connected with The Me Nobody Knows have made an exhilarating, moving and funny new musical." - The New Yorker
