Last Chance to See Heidi Schreck's What the Constitution Means to Me on Broadway
Plus, we highlight both a new Bess Wohl play and a new production of a Pulitzer Prize-winning Suzan-Lori Parks play in the Berkshires.
For this week's list of critics' picks, we ventured into the Berkshires to find a show worth considering in addition to Broadway and off-Broadway fare back in New York City. Whatever the city, though, these are all top productions that you definitely won't want to miss — including a much-acclaimed Broadway show that is closing this weekend.

"If for no other reason than to see [Deaon] Griffin-Pressley and [Bryce Michael] Wood create their stage magic, this production is worth your time. You will want to remember their names." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.
"...[E]verything from the spirited ensemble of actors doing double and triple duty to the napkin-wrapped peach they elevate to a dessert with the name 'Love Bundle' has an organic charm that makes this romp in the forest a perfectly imperfect night in New York City." Read Hayley Levitt's full review here.
"...[T]he Acting Company's pairing of Measure for Measure and Native Son does call attention to cavalier attitudes toward black and female bodies and to the white patriarchy that seeks to control them." Read Pete Hempstead's full review of both shows here.
"...Heidi Schreck's exhilarating new play, What the Constitution Means to Me, which has transferred to Broadway's Helen Hayes Theatre following two sold-out runs downtown...is the surprise thriller of the season." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
