MTC's Constellations adds 3 late night performances

The Manhattan Theatre Club have announced that its current Broadway premiere of Nick Payne's play Constellations has added three late night performances due to popular demand.

The extra shows will take place on Fridays at 10pm on the following dates: 27 February, 6 March and 13 March.

Constellations began previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on 16 December 2014, and officially opened on 13 January 2015 to excellent reviews. The limited run will conclude on 15 March 2015.

The cast features two-time Olivier Award winner and Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson (Marianne) and Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Jake Gyllenhaal (Roland), both making their Broadway debuts.

In a joint venture with London's Royal Court Theatre, and by special arrangement with Ambassador Theatre Group and Dodger Properties, the production is directed by Michael Longhurt, reuniting with author Nick Payne and actor Jake Gyllenhaal who previously collaborated on the American premiere of 'If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet' at the Roundabout's off-Broadway space.

"One relationship. Infinite possibilities." Constellations is described as "an explosive new play about the boundless potential of a first encounter, free will, and friendship".

Constellations originally opened at the Royal Court's Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in January 2012 under the direction of Michael Longhurst. The New York Times said "This superb play gets into your head and under your skin," and The New Yorker said "Constellations is at once eloquent, mysterious, witty, and brilliant." The play subsequently transferred to the West End and won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Play.
