Theater Review | ‘Time Stands Still’
Wounds of War Run Deeper Than Ever

By CHARLES ISHERWOOD

That a good play can sometimes make you feel bad is fairly obvious. If you make it to the sanguinary close of one of Shakespeare’s tragedies with nary an inward wince, for example, something is definitely amiss. It was about halfway through my latest visit to Donald Margulies’s “Time Stands Still,” which reopened on Broadway on Thursday night at the Cort Theater, after a summer hiatus, that my inward wincing became pretty unbearable.
