What: The Centaur has decided to open its 48th season with a magical, quirky, and intellectually and emotionally compelling two-hander by British playwright Nick Payne, about the concept of a “multiverse” existing, where “several outcomes can coexist simultaneously.” The story has a bit of a Groundhog Day vibe to it, where you get to see a number of scenarios play out back-to-back between Marianne the theoretical physicist and Roland the beekeeper. You can’t escape the feelings of déjà vu as the main leads slightly repeat themselves with what appears to be an endless series of possibilities and outcomes.
When: Until October 30
Where: Centaur Theatre, 453 Rue Saint-François-Xavier
