What the Constitution Means to Me

{{ event.webContent.titleSuffix }}

Jan 12 – Feb 23, 2020

Mark Taper Forum

What the Constitution Means to Me

EXTENDED! PERFORMANCES NOW THROUGH FEBRUARY 23.
New block of tickets on sale now.

Direct from Broadway, the 2019 Tony®-nominated Best Play and Pulitzer Prize finalist, What the Constitution Means to Me, by famed writer Heidi Schreck, arrives at the Taper for a strictly limited engagement.

This boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will affect the next generation of Americans. The tour stars Tony-nominated actress Maria Dizzia (Orange is the New Black) and features original Broadway cast members Mike Iveson and Rosdely Ciprian.

Fifteen year old Heidi earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In this hilarious, hopeful, and achingly human new play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives.

Schreck’s timely and galvanizing play, directed by Oliver Butler, became a sensation off-Broadway last fall before transferring to Broadway where it received two Tony Award® nominations among countless other accolades. See the play The New York Times hails as "not just the best play on Broadway, but also the most important.”

One of the most exciting things I've ever seen....I left feeling more hope about the survival of democracy.
