John Sibi Okumu’s Adaptation Of Broadway’s ‘Constellations’ Set To Kick Off In Nairobi

The actors Philip Coulson and Silvia Cassini are currently rehearsing the roles of Roland – a beekeeper and Marianne – a university academic,  in the first ever Nairobi showing of Broadway production Constellations.

Reviewed as short, sweet and strangely haunting by the New York Times, Constellation is a story of a young couple who break through the boundaries of the time/space continuum to explore the infinite possibilities of their love.

Science and romance collide in the love story that has delighted audiences in New York as well as London, and will now be showing in Nairobi for the first time ever at the Braeburn Austin Theatre on Friday 8th/ Saturday 9th June.

It will also play a week later on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th June, at 7.30pm at the same venue.

The main characters have previously been handled by Jake Gyllenhaal and British thespian Ruth Wilson (who has been playing her biggest role to date on Showtime’s “The Affair”)
