Jake is due to take to the Broadway stage with Constellations, a play that has a great deal in common with If There Is - same writer (Nick Payne), same director (Michael Longhurst), and both enjoyed great success during their London seasons.
The Guardian tells us about the play: 'It considers the idea of a multiverse – parallel universes with slightly differing possibilities – where the play's central couple sometimes live harmoniously in love, sometimes fractiously'.
Constellations will begin previews on 16 December at the Manhattan Theatre Club and opening night will be on 16 January. More details here. Looks like a busy birthday and Christmas for Jake again!
An interesting sidenote from the Guardian: 'His actor sister Maggie will also make her Broadway debut this year, opposite Ewan McGregor in Tom Stoppard's comedy The Real Thing.'
In other news, Deadline has reported that Jake is in early talks to appear in Demolition directed by Jean-Marc Vallée of Dallas Buyers Club fame: 'The story centers on a young investment banker struggling to understand his emotional disconnect after the tragic death of his wife. He begins to tear apart his life in a distraught effort to see where he went wrong but ultimately is rescued by a woman he meets in a chance encounter.'
