Christina Ricci to Make Broadway Debut in TIME STANDS STILL

CHRISTINA RICCI

TO MAKE BROADWAY DEBUT IN

TIME STANDS STILL

ACCLAIMED ACTRESS TO JOIN PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED

LAURA LINNEY, BRIAN D’ARCY JAMES, & ERIC BOGOSIAN

PRODUCTION RESUMES PERFORMANCES SEPTEMBER 23, 2010

Christina Ricci, acclaimed Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress, will make her Broadway debut in TIME STANDS STILL when the Tony nominated Best Play resumes performances September 23, 2010 on Broadway at a Shubert theatre to be announced.

Ricci rose to fame as the young star of films such as The Addams Family, Casper, and Mermaids. She went on to captivate critics and audiences in such films as the Academy Award-winning Monster, The Ice Storm and The Opposite of Sex, for which she received an award from the National Board of Review and a Golden Globe nomination.

In TIME STANDS STILL, Ricci joins previously announced original cast members Laura Linney, Brian d’Arcy James, and Eric Bogosian. The play is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and is directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.

TIME STANDS STILL, which enjoyed an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club this spring, will resume performances on Thursday, September 23, 2010 on Broadway to a Shubert theatre to be announced. Tickets for the production will go on sale Monday, May 31, 2010.

When it opened this spring, TIME STANDS STILL was hailed by critics and quickly became Broadway’s “hot ticket” (WOR Radio).  The New York Times called the play “handily Margulies’ finest play since the Pulitzer Prize winning Dinner With Friends” and USA Today said the production “soars.”

Last week, the production was honored with two Tony Award nominations: Best Play, and Best Leading Actress in a Play (Laura Linney).

Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist (Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James), have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when circumstances compel them to return home to New York and their circle of friends (Eric Bogosian and Christina Ricci) the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.

TIME STANDS STILL will be produced by Manhattan Theatre Club Productions; Inc. (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove Executive Producer); Nelle Nugent; Bud Martin; Ted Snowdon; and Wendy Federman.

The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Rita Ryack (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Darron L West (sound design), Peter Golub (original music), and Thomas Schall (fight direction).

Tickets range from $56.50 - $121.50 with premiere seating available from $175 - $250 with standing room (when available) at $26.50. Tickets include a $1.50 facility fee. Tickets will be available through Telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200, or 800-432-7250, online at www.Telecharge.com  starting May 31, 2010.

Additional listings information will be announced in the coming weeks.

BIOGRAPHY

CHRISTINA RICCI (Mandy) is one of Hollywood's most respected young actors whose talent and poise is well beyond her years. Ricci recently wrapped production on an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s short story “Bel Ami” co-starring Rob Pattinson, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Uma Thurman. The film tells the story of George Duroy (played by Pattinson), a young journalist who rose from poverty to become one of the most successful men in Paris via the ruthless and calculating bedding of the city's most glamorous and influential women.

Ricci will next be seen in Tom Brady’s Born to Be a Star opposite Stephen Dorff and Nick Swardson in a comedy about a small-town nerd who stumbles upon a family secret. The film will be released by Sony Pictures.

Ricci’s performance at age seven in a school Christmas play caught the attention of a local theatre critic, who suggested to her parents that she consider an acting career. She made her professional acting debut one year later in Mermaids in the pivotal role of Cher’s youngest daughter and Winona Ryder’s sister. As a child actor, Ricci won over audiences and critics alike with her winning portrayal of the strangely adorable ‘Wednesday Addams’ in The Addams Family. Her performance so delighted the film’s creators and movie fans that Ricci was given an expanded role in the sequel, Addams Family Values. She went on to star in the surprise hit of the summer 1995 season Casper. For that, Ricci received the prestigious NATO ShowEast Star of the Year Award and the Star of Tomorrow Award from the Motion Picture Booker’s Club for her strong performances and the $100 million-plus box office successes of Addams Family and Casper.

In 1997, Ricci made a seamless transition into more mature roles, receiving great acclaim in Ang Lee’s ensemble film, The Ice Storm, co-starring Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Allen, and Elijah Wood; then starring as ‘Dedee Truit,’ in the scathing comedy The Opposite of Sex, a performance which won her the Best Actress Award at the Seattle Film Festival; and as ‘Layla’ in Vincent Gallo's Buffalo 66. She was later nominated for a Golden Globe Award, an American Comedy Award, and an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress for her work in The Opposite of Sex, and earned a National Board of Review Best Supporting Actress Award for her combined efforts in The Opposite of Sex, Buffalo 66 and John Water’s Pecker.

Additional film credits include Larry and Andy Wachowski’s Speed Racer; Mark Palansky’s Penelope; Craig Brewer’s Black Snake Moan, a critically acclaimed performance in Patty Jenkins’ Monster, opposite Academy Award winner Charlize Theron; Wes Craven’s Cursed, Woody Allen’s romantic comedy Anything Else, Sally Potter’s The Man Who Cried and a memorable cameo in Terry Gilliam’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Additionally, Ricci starred opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, for which she won the Blockbuster Entertainment Award.

On television, Ricci’s credits include a recurring role on “Ally McBeal;” a guest appearance on “Grey’s Anatomy,” for which she received an Emmy nomination; and a guest appearance on “Saving Grace.”

Ricci currently serves as the National Spokesperson for the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) and is a member of the organization's National Leadership Council. RAINN is the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization, operating the National Sexual Assault Hotline in partnership with over 1,100 rape crisis centers across the country. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual assault, help victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.
