|WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME
ANNOUNCES RUSH POLICY
BROADWAY PREVIEWS BEGIN TOMORROW
AT THE HELEN HAYES THEATER
In advance of its first preview, What the Constitution Means to Me has announced a general rush policy. Written and performed by two-time Obie Award winner Heidi Schreck (Grand Concourse, “I Love Dick”) and directed by Obie Award winner Oliver Butler (The Amateurs, The Light Years), What the Constitution Means to Me begins previews tomorrow, March 14, 2019, at the Helen Hayes Theater (240 W 44th Street, New York, NY) with opening night scheduled for March 31, for a 12-week limited engagement. Tickets are on sale now and available via Telecharge.com.
Beginning with the first performance a limited number of general rush tickets will be available daily for $42 at the Helen Hayes Theater box office when it opens for that day’s performance only. There will be a maximum of two tickets per person. Tickets can be paid for via cash or credit card and are subject to availability. Seating locations will be determined at the discretion of the box office.
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. This hilarious, hopeful and “achingly human” (Exeunt Magazine) exploration breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of American women.
The cast of What the Constitution Means to Me includes Schreck, Mike Iveson (Gatz, The Sound and the Fury) and New York City high school students Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams, all in their Broadway debuts. Ben Beckley (Small Mouth Sounds First National Tour) understudies Iveson.
What the Constitution Means to Me features scenic design by Rachel Hauck (Hadestown), costume design by Michael Krass (Hadestown), lighting design by Jen Schriever (Eclipsed), and sound design by Sinan Refik Zafar (Hamlet).
