Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson made their Broadway debuts on January 13 in Nick Payne's new drama Constellations, which celebrated its official opening night at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Following the performance, the cast and their guests headed to the new Times Square restaurant Urbo to toast the occasion, which also happened to take place on Wilson's birthday.

Constellations explores the relationship between Roland (Gyllenhaal), a beekeeper, and Marianne (Wilson), a quantum physicist, through the concept of the multiverse theory, where several scenarios can coexist at the same time. The production is directed by Michael Longhurst. Payne's drama premiered at London's Royal Court Theatre in 2012 before moving to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre later that year.

Guests for the festivities included rapper 50 Cent, TV favorite Kirstie Alley, and a host of Wilson's costars on the Golden Globe-winning series The Affair, including Dominic West, Colin Donnell, Mare Winningham, and Deirdre O'Connell.
