Talk about not standing still in efforts toward gaining a Broadway berth.
Not even a year after its world premiere at Los Angeles' Geffen Playhouse, Donald Margulies' Time Stands Still opens Thursday evening at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
As on the Left Coast, this Time Stands Still is once again helmed by Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan and features Alicia Silverstone. But this incarnation of Margulies' play replaces Anna Gunn, David Harbour and Robin Thomas with Laura Linney, Brian d'Arcy James and Eric Bogosian, respectively.
Manhattan Theatre Club describes Time Stands Still as follows:
James and Sarah, a journalist and a photographer, have been together for nine years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when injuries force them to return home to New York, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life. This timely and intelligent play marks the fourth collaboration for Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan.
The play enjoyed some raves during its earlier California engagement. Will Time Stands Still stand tall among Broadway critics? I'll be providing my own SOB Review shortly.
