  Constellations at Geffen Playhouse


Geffen Playhouse
10886 Le Conte Avenue Los Angeles

Roland is a beekeeper. Marianne is a quantum physicist. What are their odds of falling in love? With infinite moments that can alter the trajectory of a life, it's anyone's guess how cosmic collision is possible. Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time) and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey) star in Nick Payne's Olivier-nominated hit Constellations, a charming, devastating and profound exploration of the universal truth of finding and losing love. Ben Brantley of The New York Times raved, "Who knew that higher physics could be so sexy, so accessible -- and so emotionally devastating?" You, too, can ponder big questions about the difference between choice and destiny when Constellations makes its Los Angeles premiere at the Geffen Playhouse.

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Fortunately, Goodwin and Leech have a lively, recognizable rapport. We might not know exactly which version of events transpired in the collective illusion we scientific ignoramuses call “reality,” but it is easy to believe that in some insignificant nook in the dwarfing multiverse Marianne and Roland’s love continues to live on."

Broadway World - Recommended

"...There is an effortlessness about the production that director Giovanna Sardelli achieves by wrapping infinity around a single theatrical conceit and not overplaying her hand. Fanciful yet profound, and exhilarating in the most hopeful of ways, a strange comfort arises when we realize early on that things are going to shift suddenly and frequently, and we are not meant to analyze them at every turn but to relax into the wholeness of the play."

Edge - Recommended

"...Director Giovanna Sardelli keeps the pace going strong, allowing an audience to follow as best they can the oddities up there. It's a unique look at an age-old mating ritual, beautifully spoken in Brit accents, amusing and tender. You will not have seen this play before, so if the subject interests you, see it and enjoy the experience."

"...So that's me, not getting it. But who knows, in some other universe, I might be loving it even as we speak. And I don't mean that facetiously. Other people stood and cheered. And that's much more fun than feeling like the odd man out."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Ginnifer Goodwin and Allen Leech lend their considerable movie/TV star power, charisma, and talent to the Geffen Playhouse Los Angeles Premiere of Constellations, Nick Payne's brain-teasing look at the multitude of possibilities inherent in a single romantic relationship."

Stage Raw - Recommended

"...The ever-shifting narrative demands that the actors be very quick on their feet, to reflect the changing emotional climate. Goodwin and Leech have formed a rich and palpable bond that supports and adds richness to the tale. And director Giovanna Sardelli charts the constant permutations in their relationship with precision and sensitivity, while designer Lap Chi Chu uses lighting to alert us to changes of time and place."
