    Wounds of War Run Deeper Than Ever

    Ben Brantley

    October 7, 2010: That a good play can sometimes make you feel bad is fairly obvious. If you make it to the sanguinary close of one of Shakespeare’s tragedies with nary an inward wince, for example, something is definitely amiss. It was about halfway through my latest visit to Donald Margulies’s “Time Stands Still,” which reopened on Broadway on Thursday night at the Cort Theater, after a summer hiatus, that my inward wincing became pretty unbearable.

    January 29, 2010: Sarah Goodwin, the complicated woman at the heart of “Time Stands Still,” seems to thrive on conflict, at least professionally. A photojournalist who covers wars and global strife, she keeps chaos at arm’s length by trapping it in the camera lens, exerting a fierce control over moments of horror by fixing them in time.

    Christina Ricci and Laura Linney add to perfectly pitched cast

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    October 8, 2010: Two months into its Broadway run back in March, the Tony-nominated "Time Stands Still" called a time-out to allow Laura Linney to shoot "The Big C." Seven months later, Donald Margulies' play is back in fine form, now at the Cort Theatre with Christina Ricci. The film actress known for edgy work in "Monster" and "The Opposite of Sex" proves herself delightfully natural on stage playing a young woman who tends to look on the bright side.

    Ricci Joins Linney, Bogosian in Riveting 'Time Stands Still'

    John Simon

    October 7, 2010: After a hiatus of several months “Time Stands Still,” Donald Margulies’s outstanding four- character play reopens with three distinguished incumbents (Laura Linney, Brian d’Arcy James and Eric Bogosian) and one well-known newcomer: Christina Ricci has replaced Alicia Silverstone.

    Time Stands Still

    Tulis McCall

    October 8, 2010: Donald Margulies wants you to think, and he won’t take no for an answer. A photojournalist, Sarah Goodwin (Laura Linney), has returned home from an unnamed war (think Afghanistan) after being blown up by a roadside bomb - you know, the ones we hear so much about and to which we pay so little attention. She was the survivor of a bomb that killed her “fixer” – interpreter – with whom she was also in love. She is scarred, literally and figuratively, bruised, angry, and guilty.

    TIme Stands Still Review Again: More Moving This Time

    Jonathan Mandell

    October 7, 2010: Time has not stood completely still for “Time Stands Still,” which, in an unusual move, has re-opened on Broadway six months after it closed there, with almost everything intact, including Laura Linney as the injured war photographer. There are two significant changes – Christina Ricci in place of Alicia Silverstone in the four-character play…and my reaction.

    January 29, 2010: Can you be a dispassionate, uninvolved observer of horrific events, recording them for posterity and still keep a sense of right and wrong, not to mention your sanity?

  • USA TODAY REVIEW OF Time Stands Still

    January 29, 2010: Donald Margulies tends to write smartly crafted, accessible plays that tell us nothing we don't already know. Luckily, these works attract actors who can transcend their clichés and mine their intelligence and good-natured humor.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Time Stands Still

    January 29, 2010: Donald Margulies' new play is a thoughtful, absorbing work, its strengths maximized in the crystalline naturalism of Daniel Sullivan's production and the incisive interpretations of four astute actors. Reflecting on the divergent growth paths and changing needs of long-term relationships, "Time Stands Still" tends to tack on ethical debate points that reveal as much of the playwright's voice as those of his characters. This makes the drama somewhat amorphous and less satisfying than it could be. But there's a ring of truth to the emotional experience being thrashed out onstage that keeps it compelling.
