What the Constitution Means to Me 2020

What the Constitution Means to Me is a unique, humorous, and powerful play written and starred in by Heidi Schrek – a successful film and theater writer (Billions, Nurse Jackie, Bad Behavior) and two-time Obie (an Off-Broadway award) winner. The story delves into Schrek’s young adult years of giving speeches about the U.S. Constitution in contests for scholarship money.

The now-adult Schrek cheerily introduces herself and explains that she is recreating the experience from decades ago. The set looks just like a Legion club with a wall-full of framed photos of gentlemen behind her. She asks the audience members to act as the judges of the American Legion committee who acted as judges of the inspiring speeches given by teenagers.Read More ...

    Critical Acclaim

    When the show debuted in 2017 off-Broadway, it was right during the middle of the Brett Kavanaugh trail, and critics found a timely tie between this story of a governmental system that was founded to support its creators – white men – and current events in the news. The New York Vulture called the show, “Personal, political, and uncannily timed.”

    As a fairly new, low-key show, we will have to wait for more feedback as it enters its first season on Broadway. However, it’s already a hit with some audiences – New York Theatre called it, “[a] remarkable mix of civic lesson and storytelling…[an] extraordinary show…Funny and infuriated, analytical and confessional, erudite and heartbreaking.”

    Seating Recommendations

    What the Constitution Means to Me performances take place in the historic and newly-renovated Helen Hayes Theatre. A smaller, intimate theater, there are no bad vantage points in the house.

    For the best views with the best price point, check out the Center Orchestra section, Rows F-M or the Mezzanine middle section, Rows D and F.

    The choicest seats in the house are in the Center Orchestra section. Reserve the center seats of the premium orchestra section (A to D) or in the Mezzanine, Seats 101-114 in Rows A-C.

    The only complaint you’ll ever hear about this theater is that the seats are quite tight. Long-legged visitors should race to book Row A in the Orchestra section, Row A in the Front Mezzanine, Row A in the Rear Mezzanine, or aisle seats.
