About The Starry Messenger

Now open to critical and audience acclaim, see Hollywood star and multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Matthew Broderick in his West End debut in the "hugely enjoyable" (Whatsonstage) The Starry Messenger by Kenneth Lonergan, Academy Award-winning writer of Manchester by the Sea.

Mark Williams is lost. An astronomer at New York City’s Planetarium, he feels a closer connection to the infinite, starry sky than to his job or even to his wife, Anne. Mark doesn’t believe in fate or divine intervention, but the universe has other ideas.

After a chance meeting with Angela, a young single mother, Mark feels starry-eyed. But when a catastrophic event rips through their lives, Mark is forced to re-evaluate his life, his faith and his place in the universe itself.

Starring Matthew Broderick and Elizabeth McGovern, this bittersweet, comic drama is an unblinking exploration of love, hope and understanding our place in the universe, by one of the most celebrated writers working today.

"A comic drama about life, the universe and everything" ★★★★ – The Times

"A beacon of light to the little guys everywhere" ★★★★ – Daily Mail

"Elizabeth McGovern brings a piercing vulnerability" ★★★★ – London Theatre
