    What the Constitution Means to Me Tickets

    Heidi Schreck’s fiercely political What the Constitution Means to Me receives a Broadway transfer to the Hayes Theater. Taking a scalpel to the American Constitution to reveal how it affects women’s rights, this affecting and funny play begins previews on March 14 2019.

    After becoming an Off-Broadway sensation last fall, Heidi Schreck's rousing political play What the Constitution Means to Me transfers onto the Great White Way. Charting Schreck’s personal connection to the US Constitution from childhood to present day, this runaway hit is set to storm the Hayes Theater.

    Heidi Schreck spent her teenage years travelling up and down the country as a Constitutional debater. It helped pay for her college tuition, but also left her with some profound questions. In What the Constitution Means to Me, she recalls her teenage self and traces the lives of four generations of women in her family, all affected by controls placed on body and mind. Deftly taking a scalpel to America’s most famous bill of rights, this keenly funny but painfully human play asks: does the Constitution really offer freedom to all Americans?

    What the Constitution Means to Me on Broadway features Schreck herself alongside a cast including Rosdely Ciprian, Thursday Williams and Mike Iveson (Public Theater: Measure for Measure).

    Having previously written episodes of I Love Dick and Billions, Constitution marks Schreck’s Broadway debut. As an actress, she has twice won the Obie Award, Performance, for Drum of the Waves of Horikawa and Circle Mirror Transformation.

    The show is directed by Oliver Butler, another Obie winner for The Open House in 2014. The creative team is filled out by scenic designer Rachel Hauck (Latin History for Morons), Tony Award nominated costume designer Michael Krass (Machinal) and lighting designer Jen Schriever (The Lifespan of a Fact).

    With a galvanizing and prescient subject matter at its heart, What the Constitution Means to Me at the Hayes Theater is guaranteed to leave audiences shaken and stirred into action. It begins previews on March 14 2019 with opening night set for March 31.
