Ruth Wilson, who has won acclaim for her performances as Alice Morgan in “Luther,” the BBC crime drama, and who also stars in the forthcoming Showtime series “The Affair,” will make her Broadway debut in Nick Payne’s “Constellations,” the Manhattan Theater Club announced on Wednesday. She will play opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, who will also be making his Broadway debut.
The play, a hit in London, is about an unusual encounter between Roland, a beekeeper (played by Mr. Gyllenhaal), and Marianne, a physicist (Ms. Wilson). Although American audiences know her best for her work in film (“Anna Karenina,” “The Lone Ranger”) and television, Ms. Wilson’s theater work in London has won her two Olivier awards, the British equivalent of the Tony. She won as best supporting actress in the Donmar Theater’s production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” in 2010, and as best actress in the Donmar’s “Anna Christie” in 2012.
The production will have a 13-week run at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater, where it begins previews on Dec. 16, and opens on Jan. 13.
That production’s director, Michael Longhurst, returns for the Manhattan Theater Club’s Broadway version of “Constellations,” which begins previews in December at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater. The role of the man who gives new credence to the idea of the divided self will be taken by Mr. Gyllenhaal, who did nicely by Mr. Payne’s dialogue in “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet,” in which he made his New York stage debut two years ago.
When Mr. Butterworth’s “The River” showed up in 2012 for a limited run in the tiny Jerwood Theater Upstairs at the Royal Court (the very place where “Constellations” had opened nine months earlier), The Guardian’s Michael Billington had one serious reservation: “I only wish that more people could get in to see it.”
