Heidi Schreck's groundbreaking new play What the Constitution Means to Me, now in previews on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theater, received a visit from New York Senator Chuck Schumer March 23. The play will celebrate its opening night March 31.

What the Constitution Means to Me is written and performed by Schreck with direction by Obie Award winner Oliver Butler. Mike Iveson and New York City high school students Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams—both seen in the 2018 Off-Broadway productions—complete the cast on Broadway.

Fifteen-year-old Schreck put herself through college by giving speeches about the U.S. Constitution. In her play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the effects of the founding document on generations of women, including many in her own family.

What the Constitution Means to Me is scheduled to run through June 9.
