The Me Nobody Knows is a groundbreaking Tony-nominated and Obie Award-winning musical that 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 multiracial cast of young people. Inspired by actual writings of students in 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 Me depicts the raw and candid experience of a demographic that has a voice not often found in musical theater. Portland Community College aspires to bring exceprts from this powerful musical through stage and film. The spirit and themes of The Me, despite having been written nearly 50 years ago, feel completely relevant through today’s lens. In choosing this piece, the desire is to initiate inter-generational conversations reflecting on today and a time not so long ago. Take the journey with us!
