Ditzy Ricci Joins Mangled Linney in ‘Time Stands Still’: Review

After a hiatus of several months “Time Stands Still,” Donald Margulies’s outstanding four-character play reopens with three distinguished incumbents (Laura Linney, Brian d’Arcy James and Eric Bogosian) and one well-known newcomer: Christina Ricci has replaced Alicia Silverstone.

On second viewing, I found the play even more satisfying. Margulies, a gifted playwright, tells the story of a photojournalist Sarah Goodwin (Linney) and reporter James Dodd (James), who have been collaborating and cohabiting for 8 1/2 unwed years and are just back in their Brooklyn loft.
