Time Stands Still
Donald Margulies' new play "Time Stands Still" opened last night at Manhattan Theater Club to pretty good reviews, with Charles Isherwood of the NY Times calling it a "thoughtful drama ... in a flawless production directed by Daniel Sullivan ... Handily Mr. Margulies' finest play since the Pulitzer Prize winning 'Dinner With Friends'." Isherwood also gave positive notices to stars "Laura Linney and Brian d'Arcy James, [who give] performances of complementary sensitivity and richness." With the respect these four theater folk have within the Broadway community, I'm predicting nominations for Linney and d'Arcy James for lead actress and actor, best director for Sullivan, and best play for Margulies.
