Overview

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. Based on the published writings of NYC public school children, THE ME depicts the raw and candid experience of a demographic that has not otherwise found a voice in musical theater. Those voices are brought to life through beautiful music, inspired poetry and affecting dance. The spirit and themes of THE ME, despite having been written nearly 50 years ago, feel completely relevant through today's lens.
