Romance meets physics in Boise Contemporary Theater’s production of “Constellations,” Nick Payne’s sophisticated and eloquent drama about love, string theory, relativity and quantum mechanics. Payne’s play brings together an unlikely pair: Roland (Dwayne Blackaller), a beekeeper, and Marianne (Tiara Thompson), a theoretical cosmology physicist. Their meeting turns the boy-meets-girl premise on its head, as their characters explore an infinite number of probable outcomes of their relationship.
