Berkshire Theatre Group will bring Nick Payne’s Constellations to the stage August 3–27, with an official opening August 6.
The production stars Kate Baldwin (Finian’s Rainbow) and Baldwin’s real-life husband, Graham Rowat (Mamma Mia!), as Marianne and Roland. The play explores the relationship between Marianne and Roland in multiple universes, riffing on theories of quantum physics while exploring all the “what ifs” and different possible roads following one particular interaction.
(Payne’s most recent Off-Broadway show, Incognito at MTC, also touched on scientific principles, but of cognition and neuropsychology rather than physics.)
Constellations bowed on Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel Friedman Theatre in 2015 starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson. The production marked Payne’s Broadway debut and garnered a Best Actress in a Play Tony nomination for Wilson.
Baldwin and Rowat appeared together in Berkshire Theatre Group’s production of A Little Night Music in 2014.
Gregg Edelman directs the Berkshire Theatre Group staging.
