Heidi Schreck, Josh Groban, Rachel Brosnahan, and More Celebrate the Constitution
Schreck's What the Constitution Means to Me opens at the Helen Hayes Theater.
What the Constitution Means to Me celebrated its Broadway opening at the Helen Hayes Theater on March 31. Written by Heidi Schreck, the play is directed by Oliver Butler.
What the Constitution Means to Me is described as follows: "Fifteen-year-old Heidi Schreck earned her college tuition money by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In her boundary-breaking new play, the Obie Award winner resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women in her own family and the founding document that dictated their rights and citizenship."
The cast of What the Constitution Means to Me includes Schreck, Mike Iveson, and New York City high school students Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams, all in their Broadway debuts. Ben Beckley understudies Iveson.
What the Constitution Means to Me was commissioned by True Love Productions and had its off-Broadway premiere in New York City at New York Theatre Workshop last fall. The production extended twice before NYTW transferred the production to the Greenwich House Theater.
