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.

OPENS TO GLORIOUS NOTICES

“A powerful drama in a flawless MTC production. Laura Linney & Brian d’Arcy James give performances of sensitivity and richness. Alicia Silverstone brings intelligence and humor to her character. Eric Bogosian is terrific.”

– Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

Below is a sampling of the reviews:

“A POWERFUL DRAMA IN A FLAWLESS MTC PRODUCTION DIRECTED BY DANIEL SULLIVAN. Time Stands Still is Donald Margulies’ finest play since the Pulitzer Prize-winning Dinner With Friends. His dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence. Laura Linney is an actress of unusual economy and grace. Brian d’Arcy James is a remarkably versatile actor who has never been better than he is here. Alicia Silverstone brings intelligence and humor to her character, and Eric Bogosian is terrific.” –        Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“TIME STANDS STILL SOARS! Laura Linney is remarkable as ‘Sarah.’ Her unmannered lucidity and utter lack of vanity make Sarah convincing and sympathetic. Brian d’Arcy James gives a vital performance. Eric Bogosian is winning and Alicia Silverstone gives ‘Mandy’ warmth and substance.” –        Elysa Gardner, USA Today

“FOUR STARS! Laura Linney is sublime in Daniel Sullivan’s deftly directed production. She keeps you glued from word one. Eric Bogosian and Alicia Silverstone hit all the right notes. Brian d’Arcy James has never been better. He gives a highly charged performance. Donald Margulies writes with intelligence and humor and creates dialogue that always hits the ear as real.” –        Joe Dziemianowicz, The Daily News

“SMART, STYLISH, & TIMELY. Under the savvy direction of Daniel Sullivan, Donald Margulies’ play is layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion after the curtain comes down. Laura Linney is luminous. She galvanizes the production with unsparing directness and a superb sense of timing that makes this photographer one of the most compelling characters to grace a Broadway stage this season.” –        Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

“MTC’S IMPECCIBLE PRODUCTION IS TIME WELL SPENT. A taut two hours, expertly directed by Daniel Sullivan. Brian d’Arcy James is astonishingly versatile and Eric Bogosian is excellent. This impressive, timely new work is a dynamite showcase for stellar acting.” –        Roma Torre, NY1

“Alicia Silverstone gives a bright, sharp-edged performance. Laura Linney navigates her character’s interior minefields with great delicacy.” –        Stephanie Zacharek, New York Magazine

“THIS ONE’S GOING TO BE A HOT TICKET, TRUST ME! Laura Linney is marvelous and Brian d’Arcy James is perfect. Eric Bogosian and Alicia Silverstone are in top form.” –        David Richardson, WOR Radio 

“FOUR STARS! Once again, the masterful Daniel Sullivan has taken a play and given us the smartest version of it possible. All four characters are treated with respect and acted with skill. Manhattan Theatre Club’s naturalistic production may well leave you wounded.” –        Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
