We all have someone we'd like to thank—perhaps you will recall someone you want to thank while watching “YOU” as the actors share their individual tale of gratitude and the reasons for it. The effect is subtle and profound, as artists connect with individuals in the audience. No text messages, no emoji, no abbreviations for the experience of life. If you have been lucky enough to see a previous You project, you understand and won't want to miss this. Eleven writers, and actors take the stage—at the same time—sharing their stories— in a moving, heartfelt, fast-paced, and funny way—woven together as a tapestry of life.

Loved it! What a fun experience! Weaving through the very personal, touching, funny, tearful, sweet, sweet, sweet stories was a really nice journey. I congratulate the actors on their ability to articulate in such an artful and thoughtful way each of their truthful tales. Everyone has a story, short, long, happy, sad, whatever. Truth is, everyone really has LOTS of all kinds of stories worth hearing and Megan and Chuck have created a place for them to be told.

This was my first time at The New Collective, and I really enjoyed this production! Great performance by the cast in a unique story telling format. I really felt each characters sincerity in the story line each of them performed. I am looking forward to seeing if this group of actors will come together in another production in the near future.

Such a unique, brave, funny and inspiring piece of “No Fourth Wall” theatre! The original work was created by this wonderful team of actors that Megan and Chuck Marra have sculpted into roughly an hour long performance that is unlike anything else at the Fringe.

Saw this play a couple weeks back. I love how all the stories connected and overlapped.... The actors did an AMAZING job. If you're looking for a play that holds your attention--I highly recommend seeing BECAUSE OF YOU!
