Jake Gyllenhaal's Star Power Shines in Constellations

(January 13, 2015) - In Constellations, British playwright’s Nick Payne’s first work to reach Broadway, the cards are stacked and restacked in quantitatively engaging formations. Take for example the characters. Just two. He’s a beekeeper; she’s a quantum physicist –– an intriguing yin/yang love story if ever there was one. Add to this the trajectory of Payne’s script that “defies the boundaries of the world we think we know – delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.” (read the story...)
