Tickets go on sale June 3 for the Broadway return of Time Stands Still — the 2010 Tony Award-nominated Best Play — which will resume performances Sept. 23.



The Cort Theatre is the new location for the play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies. The drama about war-zone journalists who make an uneasy reentry into their Brooklyn home made its New York City premiere earlier this year in a Broadway production by not-for-profit Manhattan Theatre Club at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Laura Linney, Brian d'Arcy James, Eric Bogosian and Alicia Silverstone starred; all but Silverstone are returning for the commercial run. Christina Ricci joins the cast.

Tickets are on sale via Telecharge.com and at (212) 239-6200 or (800) 432-7250.

Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan directs. Opening night is Oct. 7.

Time Stands Still has been nominated for two Tony Awards: Best Play and Best Leading Actress in a Play (Laura Linney).

Here's how the producers bill the show: "Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist (Laura Linney and Brian d'Arcy James), have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when circumstances compel them to return home to New York and their circle of friends (Eric Bogosian and Christina Ricci) the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life."

The new Broadway run of 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; and Wendy Federman.

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).

Tickets range from $56.50-$121.50 with premiere seating available from $176.50-$251.50 with standing room (when available) at $26.50. Tickets include a $1.50 facility fee.
