Time Stands Still - 2010 - Broadway History , Info & More

Are we supposed to deny ourselves ordinary happiness because there’s misery in the world? This is one of many questions Donald Margulies poses in his intelligent and timely new play. 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. Time Stands Still is a blazingly important new work about responsibility – to ourselves, to our loved ones, to our community, and to our world.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Time Stands Still

Wounds of War Run Deeper Than Ever
9 / 10

New plays of substance remain sadly 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 who couldn't make time for this rewarding play last spring now have a second chance to catch it.

Time Stands Still
8 / 10

Following a limited run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre last season, Donald Margulies’s dexterous drama has now returned for another shot. If the writing is occasionally well-crafted to a fault, this minor flaw is mitigated by Daniel Sullivan’s attentive direction, which elicits an exquisitely nuanced central performance from Linney and strong supporting ones from the rest of the cast, which includes a rumpled Eric Bogosian as a magazine editor and Christina Ricci (stepping in for Alicia Silverstone) as his unsophisticated young girlfriend. For all its carefully woven-in themes—about personal versus professional priorities, the ethics and limits of representation, and more—the play is perhaps best appreciated as an artfully composed picture of a woman in a quiet crisis of her own, who feels safer in war than in love.
