"Heidi Schreck's autobiographical play What the Constitution Means to Me is a highly entertaining piece that also challenges, informs and enlightens. The play weaves together Schreck's own personal experiences with the history and complexities of the United States Constitution. Featuring a superb performance by local actress Kate Haas, the production at The Phoenix Theatre Company will most likely give you plenty of food for thought for post-show conversation, debate and contemplation."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)

"In these troubled and confusing times, it is nice to know that the United States Constitution protects our rights and freedoms. The complex document is brought to throbbingly exciting life in the artful Phoenix Theatre Company production of “What the Constitution Means to Me.”  Middle-aged Heidi explains key parts in a personal but insightful way of what the document means to her....Michelle Chin’s staging keeps the pace alive and the debate active as the performers cavort around the simple American Legion’s Hall setting...s a fascinating exploration of a crucial document and what it ensures this country. "   -Chris Curcio, Curtain Up Phoenix (click here to read the complete review)

"...Kate Haas bursts on to the stage with youthful exuberance, first as storyteller and ultimately as political honest, discerning, and provocative reflection on the state of today’s polarized Union and how the interpretation of the Founders’ intentions and Constitution’s words have made all the difference in American lives. A necessary ~ and inspiring ~ reminder of where we, as a nation have been, and how far we have yet to go in realizing this nation’s full human potential."  - Herbert Paine, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
