Manhattan Theatre Club's production also stars Eric Bogosian (the actor and playwright known for Talk Radio and "Law & Order: CI") and Alicia Silverstone ("Clueless," "Miss Match," Broadway's The Graduate).

Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof) directs the limited engagement, which will open Jan. 28; tickets are now on sale through March 21.

This is the fourth collaboration for Pulitzer Prize winner Margulies (Dinner With Friends, Brooklyn Boy) and Sullivan.

According to MTC, "Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist (Laura Linney and Brian d'Arcy James), 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."

In Time Stands Still, Bogosian (making his Broadway acting debut) plays Richard, the photo editor of photographer Sarah, played by Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Linney ("John Adams," "The Squid and the Whale," Broadway's Sight Unseen). Silverstone plays Richard's young girlfriend, Mandy. D'Arcy James starred in Broadway's Shrek and The Sweet Smell of Success, among other works. The creative team for Time Stands Still 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).

MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre is at 261 W. 47th Street. Single tickets to Time Stands Still are available via www.Telecharge.com; by telephone at (212) 239-6200 or (800) 432-7250 if outside the New York City metro area; and at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre box office.

Time Stands Still, a Geffen Playhouse commission, had its world premiere Feb. 11, 2009, at the Geffen in Los Angeles, after previews from Feb. 3. Silverstone is the one holdover from that production, which Sullivan also directed. (Anna Gunn was Sarah, David Harbour was James and Robin Thomas was Richard.)
