TIME STANDS STILL Begins Final 2 Weeks Tonight

BROADWAY’S BEST REVIEWED NEW PLAY

TIME STANDS STILL

BEGINS FINAL 2 WEEKS OF PERFORMANCES TONIGHT

STARRING RECENT GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER LAURA LINNEY,

BRIAN D’ARCY JAMES, ERIC BOGOSIAN, CHRISTINA RICCI

TIME STANDS STILL, Broadway’s best reviewed new play, begins its final two weeks of performances tonight at 7 PM. The play stars recent Golden Globe Award winner Laura Linney (“The Big C”), Brian d’Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Christina Ricci. The production will play its final performance, as previously announced, on Sunday, January 30 at the Cort Theatre (137 West 48th Street). The play is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.

 

When it returned to Broadway in September, the play was hailed by critics and audiences alike. In his review for the New York Times, Charles Isherwood said, “New plays of substance remain rare on Broadway, and return engagements are almost unheard of, which makes this remounting of TIME STANDS STILL as brave as it is unusual. Thankfully audiences now have a second chance to catch it.”

 

Below is a sampling of what other critics had to say about the production: “intensely moving” (Entertainment Weekly), “smart, funny, touching and very wise” (Bergen Record), “Under Daniel Sullivan’s sure-handed direction, the cast is uniformly excellent. A perfectly-pitched quartet.” (The Daily News), “The performances of Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James are intensely felt – and intensely fine. They are superb.” (The New York Times), “The cast is shamelessly watchable.” (Newsday), “Christina Ricci makes a highly impressive debut.” (Hollywood Reporter), “Eric Bogosian is excellent.” (NY1), “The cast has gotten even better.” (The Hollywood Reporter), “Dan Sullivan’s direction is incisive.” (Newsday) and “Donald Margulies outstanding play is even more satisfying on second viewing.” (Bloomberg News).

 

TIME STANDS STILL follows Sarah and James (Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James), a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy.  Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life… and everything changes – in a flash.

Before re-opening at the Cort, TIME STANDS STILL enjoyed an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The production 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.

 

Tickets range from $26.50 – $121.50 with premiere seating available from $176.50 – $251.50 with standing room (when available) at $26.50. Tickets include a $1.50 facility fee.

TIME STANDS STILL is produced by Manhattan Theatre Club Productions; Inc. (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove Executive Producer); Nelle Nugent; Bud Martin; Ted Snowdon; Wendy Federman; Max Cooper; Susanne Adamski; Mari Nakachi; Jack M. Dalgleish; Joseph Sirola; Elisabeth Morten; Kenneth Teaton; and Sharon A. Carr.

MTC’s GOOD PEOPLE Begins Rehearsals Today

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB’S WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION OF

GOOD PEOPLE

BEGINS REHEARSALS TODAY

NEW PLAY BY PULITZER PRIZE WINNER DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE

DIRECTED BY TONY AWARD WINNER DANIEL SULLIVAN

STARRING

BECKY ANN BAKER, PATRICK CARROLL,

TATE DONOVAN, RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY,

FRANCES McDORMAND, ESTELLE PARSONS

 

The Manhattan Theatre Club world premiere production of GOOD PEOPLE, a new American play by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan begins rehearsals today. This limited engagement will begin previews on Tuesday, February 8 and open Thursday, March 3 at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

 

The production will star Becky Ann Baker (All My Sons, Assassins), Patrick Carroll (Broadway debut), Tate Donovan (“Damages,” Amy’s View), Emmy Award nominee Renée Elise Goldsberry (“One Life to Live,” Rent), Academy Award winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Almost Famous), and Oscar winner Estelle Parsons (August: Osage County, “Roseanne”).

 

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo… where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills… and where Margie Walsh (McDormand) has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling (Donovan) who has made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.

 

With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

 

Together, David Lindsay-Abaire and MTC have brought four outstanding new plays to the New York stage. Their most recent collaboration with director Daniel Sullivan, Rabbit Hole, earned a Tony Award and garnered Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

 

The creative team for GOOD PEOPLE includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Pat Collins (lighting design), Jill BC DuBoff (sound design), and Charlotte Fleck (dialect coach).

 

GOOD PEOPLE was commissioned through MTC’s Bank of America Commissioning Program.

Manhattan Theatre Club announces Master Class with Tyne Daly

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB ANNOUNCES

TONY & EMMY AWARD WINNER TYNE DALY

IN NEW BROADWAY PRODUCTION OF

TERRENCE McNALLY’S

MASTER CLASS

DIRECTED BY STEPHEN WADSWORTH

 

ON BROADWAY AT MTC’S SAMUEL J. FRIEDMAN THEATRE

PREVIEWS BEGIN TUESDAY, MAY 24; OPENING NIGHT SET FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 21

 

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Tony and Emmy Award winner Tyne Daly will return to Manhattan Theatre Club as Maria Callas in a new Broadway production of Terrence McNally’s award-winning play MASTER CLASS directed by Stephen Wadsworth.

 

The limited engagement of MASTER CLASS will play MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street) with previews starting Tuesday, May 24 with an opening night set for Tuesday, June 21. This production, which is offered as part of MTC’s 2010-2011 subscription series, will be the first show to open as part of the 2011-2012 Broadway season.

 

Daly returns to MTC after appearing in the world premiere production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole which garnered her a Tony nomination. She received a Tony Award for her performance in the 1989 revival of Gypsy. Daly is best known for her portrayal of ‘Detective Mary Beth Lacey’ in “Cagney and Lacey,” for which she received four Emmy Awards. In addition, she received Emmys for “Christy,” and “Judging Amy.”

 

Daly previously portrayed the role of Maria Callas in an acclaimed production at The Kennedy Center last spring.

 

Manhattan Theatre Club and playwright Terrence McNally have enjoyed a collaboration that has produced some of the most successful plays of the past 25 years including McNally’s breakout hit Frankie and Johnnie in the Clair de Lune (1987); The Lisbon Traviata (1989); Lips Together, Teeth Apart (1991), which became one of the longest-running hits in MTC’s history, and Love, Valour, Compassion! (1994), which transferred to Broadway and received the Tony Award for Best Play.

 

Terrence McNally’s award-winning play about Maria Callas takes us to one of her famous master classes where, late in her own career,  she challenges the next generation to make the same sacrifices and dare to rise to the same heights she did, making her the most celebrated, the most reviled and the most controversial singer of her times.

 

Additional casting, creative team, and other listings information will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

Tickets will be available beginning Friday, December 17 by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200 or online by visiting www.Telecharge.com. Tickets will be available at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre Box Office (261 West 47th Street) beginning Monday, January 3. Ticket prices will be $57 – $116. Continue reading
