Constellations

Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse

June 6 - July 16, 2017

Originally premiering in London's West End in 2012, Constellations received its Stateside premier in 2015 on Broadway.. Now Geffen Playhouse's production of the critically acclaimed play by Nick Payne will arrive on stage in June, with Ginnifer Goodwin in the cast. This one-act drama offers a both emotional and thoughtful look at one romance as it might exist across parallel universes, and the impact that chance can have on shaping our entire future. An uplifting way to ponder the what-ifs of chance and circumstance!

Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse

Opens September 1, 2017

Award winning playwright Martyna Majok brings her darkly funny play to Los Angeles, following its recent successful run Off-Broadway, which starred Gina Gershon in the lead role. Ironbound tracks the life of Polish immigrant Darja over the course of two decades, and the men who both aid and hinder her struggle to survive. The play was first produced in Washington D.C as part of the Women's Voices Theater Festival, and was praised as both a vital and damning portrait of the American dream.

venue exterior

10886 Le Conte Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90024

One of Los Angeles premiere local theater venues, the Geffen Playhouse houses three performing arts spaces - the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater, the Geffen Playhouse Annex and its largest venue, the Gil Cates Theater. Originally serving as a UCLA clubhouse from 1929, the building which now houses the Geffen was sold in the 1970s when part of it was converted to a theatre named the Westwood Playhouse. It was only in 1995 that the Geffen opened its doors with its current name after considerable fundraising, most notably from media magnate David Geffen.
