Now playing through to July 21

Nominated for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play at this year's Drama League Awards!

Heidi Schreck's adept exploration of women's role in America transfers to the main stem after its acclaimed Off-Broadway run. What the Constitution Means To Me weaves together political and personal histories to show how women's rights have shifted over the course of four generations. Following its debut Off-Broadway in 2018, it was named number one play of the year by both New York Magazine and The New Yorker. This strictly limited Broadway run is directed by Oliver Butler.

What is Constitution About?

Having paid for college tuition through winning constitutional debates as a teenager, Obie-winner Heidi Schreck knows a thing or two about America's founding document. Here she brings her teenage self to the stage, alongside other women from her family tree, creating a lively and funny conversation about rights granted and rights withheld.
