Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was in the audience for Broadway's "What the Constitution Means to Me" on Saturday night.

Audience members excitedly reported her attendance at the political-themed show which examines the U.S. Constitution and how it affects women throughout history.

Ginsburg got a standing ovation when her famous line about women on the Supreme Court was said by a cast member: "When will there be enough women on the court? My answer is, when there are nine."

One audience member said the crowd was so thrilled to see Ginsburg it turned into a "circus" with everyone trying to catch a glimpse of her.
