Heidi Schreck's comic and hopeful exploration strives to breathe new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of American women. More…
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.
See it if If you like the put down of men. Being dictated at. Good acting but plotline to dictatorial and as such, takes away from performance.
Don't see it if If you dont want to be lectured or realize that the Constitution is the constitution.
See it if You want to see yet another sob story wrapped in a cloak promising so much more. Or, if you haven't had your fill of soap opera-ish tales.
Don't see it if you really are expecting an interesting, illuminating evening. This quickly devolves into a high school-worthy venture that went off course
See it if you are so into our Me Too moment that it overrides all other rights & if you believe forbidding male misbehavior on paper will stop it cold
Don't see it if you understand that at this moment our "antiquated" Constitution is the only thing standing between us and chaos!
See it if You you like being lectured to and enjoy put downs of men. Best set at an AA meeting. Young actress the hit of the night.
Don't see it if Very disappointing despite great reviews. It’s a cheap knock-off of a Michael Moore performance who can actually discuss the real issues
See it if You like political almost one woman shows
Don't see it if Yiu don’t like to be lectured to in the theatre
See it if if you like your theater on the dry side; you love Samantha Bee, NPR and/or TED Talks; you want theater that screams "look-how-smart-I-am."
Don't see it if you are looking for emotion, comedy or provocation. This keeps you at a very safe distance at all times.
See it if Intrigued by this personable actor’s mix of family and political history. I went with high expectations but was sadly underwhelmed.
Don't see it if Wanting more than an informative lecture and debate. I appreciated the perspective of the show but expected something more theatrical.
See it if you're interested in history, particularly with the constitution, and enjoy debates. The teenage debater was amazing.
Don't see it if you don't like one-woman shows (yes there are two other people, but it's really about one). You don't want to feel like you're in school.
See it if You love feminism & storytelling. Parts of it were good but lost me after an hour & it got repetitive
Don't see it if You don’t like well deserved male bashing or are embarrassed by the constitution
See it if You're enough of a fan of the U.S. Constitution that you don't mind seeing it co-opted for polemic purposes.
Don't see it if You do not reside in the Left's cultural bubble and realize that it might not be best for the government to act as a parent.
See it if you like 1 actor shows (2 others in it with small parts), a Ted Talks type wannabe (on broadway!!??) that feels like it is in previews
Don't see it if you like to have a thoughtful conversation about the show afterwards
See it if You enjoy compelling storytelling about family and personal trauma. You want theatre that addresses today's political issues.
Don't see it if You want to see a play with a clear beginning, middle and end. You enjoy conventional character and plot development.
See it if you're a Liberal Boomer Tourist who wants to pat themselves on the back for listening to something slightly challenging in a safe setting.
Don't see it if You want radical theater to be actually radical. You think that feminism should be intersectional. You think class/money influences the law.
See it if want to hear a 15 year old contest speech on what the constitution means to me or a stump speech on the woes of feminists
Don't see it if You want to be entertained.
