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 Great acting by Heidi Schreck, who really captivates the audience, particularly in the first 20 minutes. Interesting topic, very relevant.
Don't see it if This show probably won't appeal to conservatives.
See it if If you want very interesting, intelligent, relevant insight about our constitution. The performers are bang on, the content is important.
Don't see it if I only low-balled because I found the story-telling to be a tad boring. It was slightly too lecture-like for me. Slightly. I’d fight myself.
See it if you are interested in learning more about our Constitution, like clever writing and a tour de force performance
Don't see it if You like traditional plot driven plays with easy to follow narrative.
See it if you are invested or interested in women's issues and/or the history and legacy of the Constitution.
Don't see it if you are looking for a traditional theatre-going experience with a coherent plot: Schreck's monologue is insightful but not always riveting.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 love a story delivered by a charming, erudite, sincere, brilliant, clever star. You like history. You are worried about this country.
Don't see it if ... you are expecting a musical or if you need to see elaborate sets and costumes.
See it if You want something intelligent that leaves you thinking long after the show is done. It's also really well written & funny!
Don't see it if You don't want to think about current events or think critically about the state of things in the country for a bit.
See it if you enjoy theater that challenges you and the way you see the world. Even if this does not sound like your cup of tea, take a risk on this!
Don't see it if you prefer elaborately staged plays with large, ornate sets and costumes. This show is not much to look at but does a lot with a little.
See it if You enjoy thought-provoking material and are ok with political views that support equal rights and women's right to choose.
Don't see it if You are sensitive to what might be considered "white male bashing'.
