The Dec. 1 announcement would seem to indicate that recasting and a longer run is possible for the drama directed by Daniel Sullivan. "The current cast will now end their run at the Cort on Sunday, Jan. 30," according to the producers. This cast's contract was originally to end Jan. 23, a spokesman told Playbill.com. He confirmed that this is not a closing notice for the well-reviewed play, but had no further information to release.
Time Stands Still made its Broadway premiere in spring 2009 with all but Ricci in the cast. After the limited not-for-profit run at Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway home at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, the play went on hiatus and re-opened on Oct. 7 at Broadway's Cort.
Time Stands Still is produced by Manhattan Theatre Club Productions; Inc. (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove Executive Producer); Nelle Nugent; Bud Martin; Ted Snowdon; Wendy Federman; Max Cooper; Susanne Adamski; Mari Nakachi; Jack M. Dalgleish; Joseph Sirola; Elisabeth Morten; Kenneth Teaton; and Sharon A. Carr.
The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Rita Ryack (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Darron L West (sound design), Peter Golub (original music), and Thomas Schall (fight direction).
The play follows Sarah and James (Laura Linney and Brian d'Arcy James), a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent trying to find happiness after tragedy. Margulies is a Pulitzer Prize winner for Dinner With Friends. He also penned Sight Unseen, Brooklyn Boy and other plays.
