SEATTLE PLAYS THE CONSTITUTION
Constitution Day celebrated @ Seattle’s Jewelbox Theater
When the Constitution is ‘read’ in public it usually means whizzing through the document without understanding its meaning. This past Constitution Day, Monday, September 17th, Seattleites rolled up their sleeves and got down for some real engagement.
Seattle Plays the Constitution was a public read-aloud marathon of the U.S. Constitution, accompanied by some of Seattle’s finest musicians as participants stopped to share every question, comment, point of contention, experience, idea, and interpretation. Candid and unscripted, the event was anchored by a team of Constitutional talent who shared their ideas and knowledge.
