TheaterMania did some opening night interviews with Jake Gyllenhaal and the If There IS cast, plus director Michael Longhurst and some celebrity attendees:
Annie Funke thinks that each of the characters in the play is searching for something different.
I like this description from Next Magazine:
Movie star Jake Gyllenhaal makes a smashing New York stage debut in Nick Payne’s provocative If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet. An introspective look at a dysfunctional British family for whom communication has ceased, the “it” in Payne’s title is different for each character. For the father George, superbly played by Tony-winner Brian F. O’Byrne, it’s a reason for the human race to continue its existence in spite of its destruction of the environment. For the mother Fiona, embodied with subtlety by Michelle Gomez, it’s a reason to stay in a marriage that’s gone stale. For George’s slacker brother Terry, played to perfection by Gyllenhaal, it’s a purpose to his seemingly purposeless existence. And for their overweight and bullied daughter Anna, played with heartbreaking honesty by Annie Funke, “it” is simply a reason to go on living.
Annie also mentions a funny moment that happened onstage early in the show's production:
One moment in the final scene with Terry and Anna, standing on what looks like the bow of a ship, (Titanic references are plentiful throughout the play) ended in unexpected laughter during one show. “Either the second or third preview we were standing on the top level and I had a bag over my shoulder and it flew down to the water-drenched stage,” Funke said. “The audience laughed and we laughed and it was just an organic moment.”
