James will join a cast that includes the previously announced Emmy and Golden Globe winner Laura Linney ("John Adams," Sight Unseen at MTC) and Golden Globe nominee Alicia Silverstone (The Graduate on Broadway, "Clueless"). The production will be directed by frequent Margulies collaborator and Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Sight Unseen on Broadway, Brooklyn Boy, Dinner With Friends).
The fourth cast member and creative team will be announced in the coming weeks.
Performances will play MTC's Broadway home, the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre at 261 West 47th Street, starting Jan. 5, 2010, in preparation for a Jan. 28, 2010 opening night.
Here's how Time Stands Still is billed: "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. This timely and intelligent play marks the fourth collaboration for Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan."
