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. 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.”
Recommended for ages 12 and up for mature themes. Children 6 and under are not admitted, unless otherwise noted for specific productions.
