March 3-April 2, 2017 at Copaken Stage
Kansas City, MO– Kansas City Repertory Theatre continues its 2016-2017 season with Constellations, directed by Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s Artistic Director Eric Rosen. When it comes to this multi-dimensional love story, just how much is written in the stars? Marianne and Roland’s relationship unfolds across time and space in this spellbinding, heartbreaking look at life and love at the intersection of choice and destiny, written by Nick Payne.
Constellations begins March 3 at KC Rep’s downtown Copaken Stage in the Power & Light District, (located at 14th & Main in the H&R Block Building)
“I am so thrilled to be able to share this heartbreakingly romantic story with Kansas City,” says Rosen. “Our audience will love it. It ignites your spirit in ways you did not see coming. Just when you think you know where the story is going, you don’t. You will leave the performance just stunned.”
The cast is comprised of Bree Elrod and Tuc Watkins. Bree has appeared in several Off-Broadway and regional productions and in film, including a role in Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island with Leonardo DiCaprio, Dark Feed and more. She also has local ties. Bree was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas, and has a brother, Carson Elrod, who is also an actor and lives in New York City. Tuc was born and spent his youth in Kansas City. He has extensive acting credits in theatre, TV and on the Silver Screen, including a four year turn on TV’s Desperate Housewives, and recurring roles on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks & Rec and more, as well a role in The Mummy with Brenden Fraser. He was also a regular on the popular soap opera One Life to Live for four-plus seasons, playing the villainous David Vickers.
Constellations is made possible with the generous support of H&R Block and other donors.
