Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me officially opened at The Hayes Theater on Broadway March 31. The critically acclaimed production was first seen in 2017 as part of Clubbed Thumb’s Summerworks Festival, followed by an extended Off-Broadway premiere at New York Theatre Workshop and a subsequent encore run at the Greenwich House Theater.
What the Constitution Means to Me began previews on Broadway March 14. The play 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 play a limited engagement at the Hayes through July 21.
