Review: WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME at The Marcelle Theatre

Michelle Hand is mesmerizing as Heidi, driving nearly all of the play’s dialogue. Her indelible presence is captivating. She enters, introduces herself as Heidi and tells the audience about her mother’s vision to help her pay for college by winning VFW sponsored debates about what the constitution means to her. Throughout the play, Hand steps in and out of character as the adult Heidi, the 15-year-old Heidi, and as herself addressing the audience. As the play unfolds, she unpacks her thoughts on The Constitution, the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments, and she tackles themes of women’s equality, reproductive rights, sexual assault, domestic abuse, immigration, and the decisions significant legal cases have had on women in the United States. Hand’s outstanding performance and her conviction for presenting Heidi’s dialogue is unforgettable. When she is playing Heidi, she completely disappears into the role and her electric oration of the subject matter is authentic and convincing.

BWW Review: WILDFIRE Burns With Raw Emotion

Theater is at its most compelling when the work on stage stays with the audience long after they have left the production. This is especially true with Upstream Theater's Wildfire, a well-acted and perfectly executed play that delves deeply into the psyche of some pretty ugly people.

Photo Flash: Upstream Theater presents the English Language Premiere of WILDFIRE

Six fates, three fables, one family. Claudette, Claudia, Claudine,  Carol, Callum, and Caroline have more in common than names that begin with C—they are haunted by a family history of childhood trauma, which unfolds across three generations—and then loops back … to the future.
