Laura Linney and Brian d'Arcy James star in Donald Margulies' new play.
Comments from published critics
‘‘"A powerful drama in a flawless production... 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."’’
‘‘"Time Stands Stll 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."’’
‘‘“**** 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.”’’
‘‘“Smart, stylish and 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."’’
‘‘“**** 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.”’’
