Actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson (2015 Golden Globe-winner) discuss their roles in the new play "Constellations" and the close-working relationship they have developed while starring in this unconventional and critically acclaimed two-person drama.

Also on the program we welcome conductor/arranger Fred Barton, whose next "American Showstoppers" concerts will be devoted to Irving Berlin. Two performers from the show, Tony-winning Broadway favorite, Karen Ziemba and newcomer, Bruce Landry, join Barton to Berlin's masterpiece of counterpoint, "You're Just In Love," which was a big hit for Ethel Merman in Berlin's 1953 musical, “Call Me Madam.”
