TIME STANDS STILL, the acclaimed Tony nominated Best Play will return this fall to Broadway’s Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street). The play, by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, will star Laura Linney, Brian d’Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Christina Ricci.
TIME STANDS STILL, which enjoyed an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre this spring, will resume performances Thursday, September 23, 2010 and open Thursday, October 7. The production will be on hiatus until the fall to accommodate Linney’s commitment to her new Showtime series “The Big C” which is now in production and will premiere Monday, August 16, 2010.
When it opened this spring, TIME STANDS STILL was hailed by critics and quickly became Broadway’s “hot ticket” (WOR Radio). The New York Times called the play “handily Margulies’ finest play since the Pulitzer Prize winning Dinner With Friends” and USA Today said the production “soars.”
TIME STANDS STILL was honored with Tony and Outer Critics Circle nominations for Best Play and Laura Linney was recognized with nominations for Best Actress by the Tony Awards, the Drama Desk Awards, The Outer Critics Circle Awards, and the Drama League.
Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist (Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James), have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war.
