Time Stands Still opened again on Broadway at the Cort Theatre beginning September 23, 2010, with the official opening on October 7. Three of the four cast members returned. Alicia Silverstone has prior scheduling commitments and Christina Ricci plays the role of Mandy. This production will close on January 30, 2011.

Time Stands Still is a Broadway play written by the Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan about changing relationships and developing social issues. It was nominated for two Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for Laura Linney.

In January 2010, it ran on Broadway at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in a Manhattan Theatre Club production, again directed by Daniel Sullivan. Alicia Silverstone reprised her role as Mandy, with Laura Linney starring as Sarah, Brian d'Arcy James as James and Eric Bogosian as Richard. The New York Times said "the heart of Time Stands Still lies in the gently evolving relationship between Sarah and James, which develops troubling new ripples in each scene" and said Silverstone "brings warmth, actorly intelligence and delicate humour." The New York Daily News said Margulies "writes with intelligence and humour and creates dialogue that always hits the ear as real."


Time Stands Still premiered in February 2009 at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles and was the fourth collaboration for writer Donald Margulies and director Daniel Sullivan. It starred Anna Gunn as Sarah and David Harbour as James. Robin Thomas appeared as Richard, with Alicia Silverstone as Mandy. Margulies stated that the meaning of the play was "to capture a sense of the way we live now, to dramatize the things that thinking, feeling, moral people are thinking about and struggle with." The Los Angeles Times called it a "compelling if at times elusive drama" and praised Gunn's performance.
