“MESMERIZING AND BRILLIANT! PAYNE is one of the MOST DAZZLINGLY GIFTED DRAMATISTS OF A NEW GENERATION—SHARP, FUNNY, WISE, HUMANE.” —Adam Green, Vogue
Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Nightcrawler), and Golden Globe winner and two-time Olivier Award winner Ruth Wilson (“The Affair,” “Luther”) make their MTC and Broadway debuts in the first American production of CONSTELLATIONS, a new play by Nick Payne (If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet), which premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre to tremendous acclaim. Michael Longhurst (If There Is…) directs.
This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman (Gyllenhaal and Wilson). But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know – delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.
CONSTELLATIONS is presented by Manhattan Theatre Club and the Royal Court Theatre, by special arrangement with Ambassador Theatre Group and the Dodgers.
