Time Stands Still to end acclaimed run on Sunday, January 30

BROADWAY’S BEST REVIEWED NEW PLAY

TO END RUN ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 30

AT CORT THEATRE

 

TIME STANDS STILL, Broadway’s best reviewed new play, will end its acclaimed run when stars Laura Linney, Brian d’Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Christina Ricci depart the production, as scheduled, on Sunday, January 30 at the Cort Theatre (137 West 48th Street). The play, by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, recently announced the lauded cast had extended their run at the Cort, through January 30. When it closes on that date, the production will have played 16 preview performances and 126 regular performances.

 

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).

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.

By now I expected to be able to view Mr. Margulies’s moving portrait of a troubled relationship with a certain distanced equanimity. I had already seen the play twice. And yet so intensely felt — and intensely fine — are the performances of Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James, playing journalists reeling from the trauma of covering the Iraq war, that the play’s subtly accumulating power struck me with unexpected force.

TIME STANDS STILL, the acclaimed Tony nominated Best Play will return this fall to Broadway’s Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street).

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.
