Academy-award nominated actor, Jake Gyllenhaal, is scheduled to star in the upcoming American premiere of Nick Payne’s ‘Constellations’.

The hit play debuted in London in 2012 to both critical and audience acclaim, and will be hitting the Manhattan Theater Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theater for a limited run this upcoming winter, with previews starting on December 16th and opening on January 13, 2015.

According to Amazon, “Nick Payne’s ‘Constellations’ is a play about free will and friendship; it’s about quantum multiverse theory, love and honey. “

Best known for his big screen roles in ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Prisoners’, Gyllenhaal also boasts stage experience in Kenneth Lonergan’s London production of ‘This is Our Youth’ and Payne’s Off-Broadway debut of ‘If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet’ in 2012.

‘Constellations’ will be directed by Michael Longhurst, who also directed the London production.
