Time Stands Still, by: Donald Margulies

The play is set in Brooklyn and revolves around Sarah, a photo journalist who has returned from covering the Iraq war after being injured by a roadside bomb, and her reporter boyfriend James who is swamped by guilt after leaving Sarah alone in Iraq. They receive a visit from their friend Richard, a photo editor, who introduces them to his new girlfriend Mandy, who is much younger than he. The play focuses on their relationships and Sarah and James’ prospects at a more conventional life.

Into The Woods By: Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine

Directed by: Justin Poole (Theater faculty)
April 4, 5, 6 (3 p.m. matinee), 10, 11, 12 ~ MainStage Theater

This musical intertwines the plots of several fairy tales, taken mostly from the Brothers Grimm, following them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Rapunzel,” and “Cinderella,” as well as several others. The musical is tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, and their interaction with a Witch and her curse on them. Oh, and there’s a giant.
