Theater, Fall Arts

Constellations

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 8 2017

Why would you want to buy a weekend pass to the same show? Because Gonzaga’s new production of Constellations makes a point of never being the same show twice. Student director Annika Perez-Krikorian is basing her new staging of Nick Payne’s 2012 play on a “splash” form of live theater in which actors are selected to perform alongside other actors they’ve never met. Given that Constellations centers around two people meeting, falling in love, then reliving those events in a multiplicity of might-have-beens, Perez-Krikorian says the random pairing of actors complements the idea that “two different words in a certain universe can change the direction of these two characters’ relationship. It’s a really interesting dynamic to watch, and it means you’re going to have a completely different experience every night.”
