The Los Angeles Premiere of Constellations, Nick Payne’s award-winning Broadway sensation, will extend for one week in the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse and run through Sunday, July 23. The play stars Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time, Big Love) as Marianne and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, The Imitation Game) as Roland. The Geffen’s production is directed by Giovanna Sardelli (Archduke, Guards at the Taj) and marks Goodwin’s Los Angeles stage debut and Leech’s U.S. stage debut.
Constellations began previews on Tuesday, June 6 and had its opening night on Wednesday, June 14.
Constellations is the story of Roland, a beekeeper, and Marianne, a quantum physicist. What are their odds of falling in love? With infinite moments that can change the trajectory of a life, it’s anyone’s guess how cosmic collision is possible. Nick Payne’s Olivier and Drama League nominated hit is a charming, devastating and profound exploration of the universal truth of finding and losing love. A play that balances on the question of “what if” is, at its core, a poignant picture of “what is.”
Manhattan Theatre Club’s production of Constellations opened on Broadway in 2015 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson, the production received a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Wilson) and a Drama League Award nomination for Best Play.
