A spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we knowdelving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.
Who knew that higher physics could be so sexy, so accessibleand so emotionally devastating? CONSTELLATIONS, Nick Paynes gorgeous two-character dramamay be the most sophisticated date play Broadway has seen. [Payne is] a wise and compassionate young playwrightAnd though CONSTELLATIONS is a supremely articulate play, it knows that words inevitably fail, that they are never enough to bind two people together forever. Time, it turns out, is a more effective breaker of hearts than human beings, with all their conflicted intentions, can ever be. This story of parallel universes is universal in every sense of the word. The New York Times.
Nick Paynes smart, slushy and pretty superb CONSTELLATIONS [is] about the progress of any ordinary life, which begins with seemingly endless possibilities and then dwindles until death forecloses further choiceI wasnt alone in sniffling into my Playbill. The Guardian (UK).
Short and sweet and strangely hauntingThe devilishly clever scribe is not playing games with either his characters or his audience, because with each iteration Roland and Marianne grow closer to one anotherand become more important to us. And by the end of the play (has it really been only an hour?), were fully invested in their lives. All of them. Variety.
a singular astonishment, at once eloquent and mysterious but which nonetheless articulates within its own idiosyncratic idiom something that touches an audience as reala wholly satisfying and complete emotional journeyThe well-judged dialogue, at once terse and trenchant, finds its own characteristic poetry. The New Yorker.
