ABOUT THE SHOW
Performing at Highland Center for the Arts for two performances only! July 20 - 21.
Physicist Marianne meets beekeeper Roland at a party. They go for a drink … or perhaps they don’t. Marianne’s engaged … or perhaps Roland is married. Or maybe they’re both single. Nick Payne’s smash Broadway hit play (in which Jake Gyllenhaal played Roland) takes this chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Breathlessly navigating through the spellbinding and romantic journey of being in love, Constellations looks at how the tiniest change in the detail of our lives can lead us on completely different paths.
