Well worth the time

See it if Drama lovers delight as contemporary master gets it right. Strong primary pair. Nagrant easily carries show. Ensemble runs like Swiss watch.

Don't see it if Off off Bway lacks amenities. Low maintenance audiences fare best. It's really all about the play. Read more

Theater Pizzazz

"New Light Theater Project holds true to the standards of the Little Theater Movement with this revival of 'Time Stands Still'. The truth in each moment in this complicated story reaches heights, soaring just above the life of an average New Yorker. In the listening, the characters find strength. Director Jerry Heymann makes certain that the space is completely inhabited. Every breath matters. Light jazz music...ensures a light mood, through every turn of emotions."

"This insightfully written, articulate play pits bearing witness against trying to actively help...The company is all very good. Each actor creates distinctive bearing, movement, and speech...Director Jerry Heymann has a keen eye for subtle moments and nuanced timing. He invisibly brackets tension and sarcasm, utilizes watchfulness as often as gesture and approaches the piece without judgment."

"Audiences who were underwhelmed by the original production will discover new relevance, rawness, and humor the New Light Theater's heartfelt revival...The script goes to both painful and tenderly funny places as these intelligent, troubled characters navigate the intersection of personal and polemical...Nagrant movingly captures Sarah's battered idealism...Equally compelling, Long embodies James's disillusion and resilience...They receive ample support from the supporting cast."

"Under the capable direction of Jerry Heymann and the first-rate set design of Brian Dudkiewicz, the interior life of the narrative is compelling...Nagrant and Long establish a lived authenticity and love between these two characters, which exists alongside the heaviness of the trauma they have survived, both individually and as a couple...An impressive staging of one of Margulies’ finest and most thought-provoking dramas."
