Tickets for TIME STANDS STILL, which enjoyed an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre this spring, will go on sale Monday, May 31, 2010.

Ricci recently wrapped production on an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's short story "Bel Ami" co-starring Rob Pattinson, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Uma Thurman.When it opened this spring, TIME STANDS STILL was hailed by critics and quickly became Broadway's "hot ticket" (WOR Radio). The New York Times called the play "handily Margulies' finest play since the Pulitzer Prize winning Dinner With Friends" and USA Today said the production "soars."Last week, the production was honored with two Tony Award nominations: Best Play, and Best Leading Actress in a Play (Laura Linney).Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist (Laura Linney and Brian D'Arcy James), have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when circumstances compel them to return home to New York and their circle of friends (Eric Bogosian and Christina Ricci) the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.
