The Los Angeles premiere of Nick Payne's Constellations has extended its run by one week at the Geffen Playhouse and will now offer performances through July 23.

Directed by Giovanna Sardelli, the production stars Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time, Big Love) as Marianne and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, The Imitation Game) as Roland.

Constellations is described as "the story of Roland (Leech), a beekeeper, and Marianne (Goodwin), a quantum physicist. What are their odds of falling in love? With infinite moments that can change the trajectory of a life, it's anyone's guess how cosmic collision is possible."

Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Constellations opened on Broadway in 2015 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson. The production received a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Wilson) and a Drama League Award nomination for Best Play.

The Geffen production began previews on Tuesday, June 6, and had its opening night on Wednesday, June 14.
