Hey there, you! Thanks for visiting our website! Our mission is simple: destroy men. With theatre. Except you! You're cool! Someday we're going to be as big as and successful as Harvey Weinstein. Unrelated: if you're a young and attractive male actor we'd like to have you intern with us. Please email a full body photo.

YouUp? Productions is a young New York-Based Theatre Group founded by Amanda Murphy, Chris Matos, and Amanda Jayne. The collective functions to present new works by early career artists, with a focus on plays written by women with strong female lead characters. Their mission is to encourage the growth of women in charge both onstage and behind the scenes. Since its inception in 2018, YouUp? has presented 9 one-act plays and staged readings across New York City.
Amanda Jayne is no stranger to the stage, but no friend to it either. She works behind the scenes as a stage manager/ tech nerd, and she is also a Stony Brook graduate. She received a "you up?" text once, but she was already in her jammies.
Murphy is a playwright, actor, director and producer who has done an inexplicable amount of standup comedy since graduating from Stony Brook University's semi-defunct theatre program. If she took her glasses off and let her hair down more she'd be at least a seven.
