Alicia Silverstone To Join Cast of MTC’s TIME STANDS STILL

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB

ANNNOUNCES GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE

ALICIA SILVERSTONE

TO JOIN CAST OF DONALD MARGULIES’

TIME STANDS STILL

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Golden Globe nominee Alicia Silverstone will join the previously announced Laura Linney in the cast of Manhattan Theatre Club’s upcoming New York premiere of TIME STANDS STILL by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies with direction by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.

Silverstone will be returning to Broadway after her appearance in the smash Broadway production of The Graduate. Her extensive television and film credits include the iconic film Clueless and the NBC series “Miss Match” for which she received a Golden Globe nomination.

The limited engagement of TIME STANDS STILL will begin previews at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street) on Tuesday, January 5, 2010 in preparation for a Thursday, January 28, 2010 opening night.

In this new production, Silverstone will play ‘Mandy,’ a role which garnered her critical acclaim during the play’s world premiere in Los Angeles. Bob Verini of Daily Variety said Silverstone, “turns her character into an independent spirit of unexpected conviction.”

Are we supposed to deny ourselves ordinary happiness because there’s misery in the world? This is one of many questions Donald Margulies (Brooklyn Boy, Sight Unseen, Dinner With Friends) poses in his intelligent and timely new play. James and Sarah (Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Laura Linney), a journalist and a photographer, have been together for nine years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when injuries force them to return home to New York, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life. TIME STANDS STILL is a blazingly important new work about responsibility – to ourselves, to our loved ones, to our community, and to our world. The production will be directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Sight Unseen on Broadway, Brooklyn Boy, Rabbit Hole, Proof)

Complete casting for the four person play and the complete creative team for TIME STANDS STILL will be announced in the coming weeks.

Manhattan Theatre Club’s complete 2009-2010 Broadway season at the Samuel J. Friedman will feature a new production of George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber’s THE ROYAL FAMILY, the New York premiere of Donald MarguliesTIME STANDS STILL, and the Broadway premiere of Margulies’ COLLECTED STORIES. The Off-Broadway season will include Lynn Redgrave’s NIGHTINGALE, Bill Cain’s EQUIVOCATION, and Polly Stenham’s THAT FACE.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and Executive Producer Barry Grove, MTC has become one of the country’s most prominent and prestigious theatre companies. MTC productions have earned a total of 16 Tony Awards and six Pulitzer Prizes, an accomplishment unparalleled by a New York theatrical institution. Renowned MTC productions include Ruined; The American Plan; Top Girls; Come Back, Little Sheba; Blackbird; Translations; Shining City; Rabbit Hole; Doubt; Proof; The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife; Love! Valour! Compassion! ; A Small Family Business; Sylvia; Putting It Together; Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune; Crimes of the Heart; and Ain’t Misbehavin’.

Last season, MTC’s Broadway stage was renamed the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The landmarked theatre has been the institution’s home on Broadway since 2003 and was rehabilitated by MTC following a two-year, $35 million capital campaign. In addition, MTC operates an Off-Broadway home at New York City Center (131 West 55th Street), where it has been in residence since 1984.

BIOGRAPHY

ALICIA SILVERSTONE (Mandy) is a critically acclaimed actress best known for her roles on stage and screen. Her numerous film credits include The Crush, Batman & Robin, Beauty Shop, Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, and the iconic blockbuster Clueless, among others.  In 1997 Silverstone produced and starred in Excess Baggage, featuring Benicio del Toro and Christopher Walken – making her, then, the youngest producer of all time. Silverstone’s stage work includes performances in The Graduate (on Broadway, alongside Kathleen Turner), the David Mamet-directed production of Boston Marriage (Los Angeles), Mamet’s Speed the Plow, and most recently, Donald Margulies’s Time Stands Still at Geffen Playhouse (directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan). Among her television portrayals are leading roles in three of Aerosmith’s best known videos (including “Cryin’” which was voted Best Video of All Time by MTV), a Golden-Globe nominated performance in the NBC series “Miss Match,” and an Emmy-nominated performance in the hit animated children’s show “Braceface,” for which Silverstone provided the voice of the main character and served as executive producer. The series earned a Genesis Award, an Environmental Media Award, and a Prism Award nomination. Silverstone has long been a vocal advocate for environmental causes and was recently awarded a “Heart of Green” award by the Hearst Corporation, which recognized her pioneering work in helping “green go mainstream.” Silverstone is continually asked to offer environmentally friendly fashion, dining, entertaining, and lifestyle tips to leading media outlets. Her first book, The Kind Diet: How to Feel Great, Lose Weight, and Save the Planet, will be published by Rodale in October 2009 and features recipes and advice which speak to the fact that, what’s good for the planet is also good for the body.
