AZIZ ANSARI has quickly established his presence in the comedy world. He is currently starring in a popular television series, is developing a number of films and will soon debut his second hour-long standup special. The Hollywood Reporter said that he "has become one of the most prolific writers and performers on the comedy scene in recent years" and Rolling Stone recently placed him on the cover of their special comedy issue labeling him "the funniest man under 30." In addition, Paste Magazine has named him one of the "Top 10 Comedians of the Decade." Ansari also wrapped a much buzzed about gig as the host of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Ansari co-stars opposite of Amy Poehler in the Emmy nominated NBC series, "Parks and Recreation," which is currently in it's fourth season. The series received it's first Emmy nomination in 2011 for "Outstanding Comedy Series." Ansari's portrayal of government employee 'Tom Haverford,' has earned him much critical praise including Entertainment Weekly naming him one of their "Breakout TV Stars," TV Guide naming him a "Scene Stealer" and Yahoo! TV placing him in the number one spot on their list of "TV MVPS: The Most Valuable Performers of the Fall Season." People Magazine recently named him 2011's "Funniest Dude in Prime Time."

As the play opens, the challenges facing Sarah and her partner, James Dodd, seem clear enough. James has just brought Sarah home from a hospital in Germany, where she was recuperating from severe injuries suffered while she was covering the war in Iraq. Antsy and unused to the burdens of repose, Sarah rebuffs James' constant efforts to cushion her from the bumps and bruises of recovery. His anxiety is amplified by a lingering sense of guilt: a reporter himself, he had suffered a breakdown in Iraq and returned to the United States shortly before Sarah's accident, which has left her with a bum leg and scarred face. Time Stands Still premiered in 2009 and has since been produced on Broadway twice. The New York Times calls Mr. Margulies play a "quietly powerful drama" that "crackles with bright wit and intelligence."
