“Gorgeous two-character drama…may be the most sophisticated date play Broadway has seen.” — The New York Times.
In “Constellations,” Roland (a beekeeper) and Marianne (a theoretical physicist) meet at a party. In that single moment, an unfathomable multitude of possibilities unfold. Their chance meeting might blossom into a meaningful relationship or a brief affair: it might lead to nothing at all. Each step along those possible paths, in turn, offers a new series of potential outcomes: a marriage can exist alongside a breakup, and a tragic illness can exist on a parallel plane to a happily ever after. In this clever, eloquent, and moving story, Roland and Marianne’s romance plays out over a myriad of possible lifetimes, capturing the extraordinary richness of being alive in the universe.
“Constellations” from author Nick Payne (most recently penning the Netflix series “Wanderlust” with Toni Collette) has been nominated for numerous awards (Tony Awards, British Olivier Awards, Drama League, etc.) The New Yorker called it “…a singular astonishment, at once eloquent and mysterious…only 80 minutes long, but a wholly satisfying and complete emotional journey.”
Directed by Christine Crawfis (founder, Mohonk Mountain Stage Company) and starring Janet E. Nurre (“Grounded,” “How I Learned to Drive”) and Rick Meyer (“Every Brilliant Thing,” “The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged.”)
