One relationship. Infinite possibilities. Nick Payne’s Constellations is an explosive play about the boundless potential of a first encounter, free will, and friendship. Constellations is a spellbinding love story about an unlikely romance between Roland, a beekeeper, and Marianne, a physicist. After a chance encounter at a barbecue brings them together, the possibility of a spark seems unlikely, but what happens next defies the limits of our understanding of time and space. Constellations explores how even the smallest change in our lives can dramatically alter the course we take. It is a spellbinding exploration of love, science, quantum theory, and infinite possibilities.
Review from Elisabeth Vincentelli of the NY Post …
Rarely has quantum physics felt as romantic, as lively as it does in Broadway’s “Constellations.” We constantly seesaw between sweet and sour, comic and tragic, romantic and pedestrian as the actors jump back and forth between storylines.
Review from Jennifer Farrar of the Associate Press …
With impressive ingenuity, Nick Payne’s touching, playful drama “Constellations” takes on some big topics — the nature of time and mortality — through his unconventional presentation of a love story set in “the multiverse”…Roland and Marianne flash through a series of scenes playing and replaying various versions of their encounters that twist into different outcomes.
