This event is featured in The Current Fall Guide, highlighting both musical and non-musical things to do this summer in the Twin Cities and beyond. The Guthrie Theater hosts the first stop on a national tour of What the Constitution Means to Me. The play, by Heidi Schreck, premiered on Broadway back in 2019 starring Schreck herself for a limited engagement and became a runway hit. The national tour stars Cassie Beck as the lead character who grapples with the legacy of the Constitution, especially as it impacts her as a woman. The play jumps back and forth in time between the present and the narrator's past, which she was a 15-year-old Constitutional debater. Besides a funny and heartwarming experience, you'll also get the bonus of learning about the Constitution — especially the ninth and 14th amendments. (Sheila Regan)
