What You'll Get
The steep elevation of theatrical stages is enough to make performers light-headed, which explains why actors are always carrying oxygen tanks. Get vicariously dizzy with today’s Groupon: for $51, you get a ticket to Time Stands Still on Broadway at the historic Cort Theatre (a $91.50 value). Scribed by Donald Margulies, this play stars the notably incandescent Laura Linney, two-time Tony nominee Brian d’Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Christina Ricci, all directed by the knowing eye and quaking finger of Tony-winner Daniel Sullivan. Like a friendly predator hawk, the story circles around a couple composed of photojournalist Sarah (Linney) and foreign correspondent James (d’Arcy). Having returned to New York from stark violence in the Middle East, their relationship is at a turning point, and unfolds in a plot that is both witty and serious, like an allegorical knock-knock joke. Garnering praise from even the most ornery critics, Time Stands Still is an absorbing production sure to tickle the fancies of men, women, and gender-free ghosts.

Time Stands Still has garnered widespread critical acclaim, with four out of five stars from the New York Daily News, an A- from Entertainment Weekly, and a perfect four out of four stars from Bloomberg. The New York Times, New York magazine, and Variety also reviewed the play.
- This drama, of two smart, humane people, deeply committed to each other but moving ineluctably in different directions, will surely resonate with anyone who has ever instinctively made an unseen turn in a relationship and found there is no way to retrace the steps and erase the past. – Charles Isherwood, New York Times
- At issue are war and peace, the perilously adventurous versus the settled family life, publishing or withholding disturbing material, and whether the work of Sarah and James may serve the cause of humanity or merely panders to sensationalist voyeurism. – John Simon, Bloomberg
