About the Concert
Stories of Me and You is an anthology concert featuring current and up-and-coming Broadway talent exploring the work of musical theater writer Jacob Ryan Smith.

Directed by Yoni Weiss, Stories of Me and You will be Jacob Ryan Smith’s New York debut, featuring selections from MR. SIPPLE (2018 Eugene O’Neill New Musical Theater Festival Semi-Finalist), PAINLESS: The Opioid Musical, an educational musical featuring orchestrations by Tony nominee and Olivier Award winner August Eriksmoen, and Midnight Channel: The Musical, an internet musical based off of the hit video game Persona 4, with over one million accumulated listens on SoundCloud.
