Silas Weir Mitchell and Dana Green star in Constellations — playwright Nick Payne’s exploration of love in the multiverse — opening at The Armory on May 19, with preview performances beginning May 13, and regular performances running through June 11. Portland Center Stage at The Armory’s Artistic Director Chris Coleman will direct this multifaceted love story. Silas Weir Mitchell, who starred as the beloved Blutbad Monroe in NBC’s six-season series Grimm, will play the beekeeper Roland. Dana Green, who was last seen at The Armory in Great Expectations and was also featured on Grimm as
the Wesen Mabel Kurlon in season four, will play Roland’s love interest, the physicist Marianne.
“In Nick Payne’s gem of a story, what seems at first a random series of viewpoints eventually reveals a structure as elegant and musical as the universe itself,” said director Chris Coleman. “I’m thrilled to explore the world of this play with Silas Weir Mitchell and Dana Green, two artists who have captivated audiences at The Armory in the past and are perfectly suited for digging into the complexities of Payne’s brilliant script.”
ABOUT THE PLAY
This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next 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. Imagine: What if everything you’ve ever done exists along with everything you’ve never done? The script was initially inspired by a PBS documentary, The Fabric of the Cosmos, which explored quantum physics and the theory of the multiverse.
