PREVIEW DISCLAIMER: Although this is a production I've already reviewed, this West End transfer doesn't get its second Press Night until tomorrow.
The good news is a different kind of venue hasn't changed my opinion from my earlier review (which means I recommend going, and if you do I also say stop reading this review until you have. Christopher, who likes to swot up on shows before seeing them, thanked me for insisting he stay spoiler-free and experience Constellations with no preconceptions.)
Christopher was moved by the story's ultimate resolution, but he was also impressed by the skill and originality of the piece. Under the science, originality and writing skill is an almost childishly innocent, touching piece of wish-fulfillment, of how in the millions of possible universes the people we've lost and miss are still living on.
Constellations by Nick Payne is booking until the 5th of January at the Duke of York's Theatre.
Running time: 1 hour 10 minutes straight through.
