Jordan, I pretty much posted this for you. Apparently, Sally Hawkins played Marianne in the original production, how lovely would it be to see her show up here (though I know her previous Broadway outing was not too successful).

Am I losing my mind, or did he already make his broadway debut a year or two ago in a play? I distinctively remember him being in a play, where he had to grow a beard and played a troubled young man of some sort. Cannot remember the play I'm thinking of! Can anyone shed some light into this situation? Or maybe I am just going crazy...

That was Off Broadway at the Laura Pels in IF THERE IS, I HAVEN'T FOUND IT YET.

That's right!!! Thanks, WithoutATrace, for clearing my confusion.

Anyway, this new one sounds like it will be an interesting production.

Saw this play in London and absolutely adored it (Sally Hawkins was heartbreakingly good); I could really see Gyllenhaal in the male lead role actually. What a lovely Xmas treat for Broadway :)

Oh, how wonderful! Constellations is a fantastic play; in a way it's a shame Rafe Spall won't be doing this production but I'm sure Gyllenhaal will do a fine, fine job.

In another Nick Payne play, as well! Definitely my favourite work of his so far. I hope Longhurst replicates the London staging which was excellent.

You are lucky, Broadway people!

This was beautiful when I saw it in London, he is perfect for the part.

Question: isn't this a very short play? I have read that it runs little more than one hour.

Yes, the play runs about 70 minutes total.

I can already imagine the complaints around here about how that doesn't constitute a real evening of theatre...

Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I can already imagine me telling those people to shut the hell up.

I'm waiting for someone to comment about how little value this gives you per cost per minute...

Wasn't this being made into a movie? I assumed they had got pretty far with making it, but maybe it was just announced.

The maximum ticket price better be $70. I don't pay more than $1/min for plays.

The film adaptation was a rumor. Nothing ever came of it.

I hope Hawkins appears in the Broadway production.

OMG. This sounds awesome!!! The run time is short, but if it's good theatre, who cares.

I saw Rafe Spall in the London production and fell in love. Sally Hawkins was terrific as well. For a play with a "gimmick" it's still pretty terrific and wouldn't really work if it were longer than the 70 or 75 minutes it runs. I liked Jake in the water play (at the Atlantic?) but I think I'll preserve my Rafe memory and skip the NY production.
