A limited national tour of Heidi Schreck's Tony-nominated What the Constitution Means to Me kicked off at Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, with performances scheduled on extension through February 28. Tony nominee Maria Dizzia heads the cast of the Pulitzer Prize finalist in the autobiographical role previously assumed by Schreck herself in New York and in Washington, D.C.
Joining Dizzia on stage are original Broadway cast members Mike Iveson and Rosdely Ciprian, as well as local student Jocelyn Shek; the latter two alternate as debaters who go head-to-head with Dizzia over the future of the U.S. Constitution.
Following its West Coast run, the tour will continue with Dizzia, Iveson, and Ciprian to Chicago at the Broadway Playhouse March 4–April 12. A third stop in Charlotte, North Carolina, begins June 23.
