Relatively new to Columbia, Talking Horse Productions, created by local actor Ed Hanson, has found a home in the Berlin Theatre. Their newest show, Time Stands Still, ran on Broadway from Jan. 2010 through Jan. 2011.
The play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, tells the story of a James, a correspondent covering the Iraq War and Sarah, a wartime photographer, who meet up with friends they have in New York City who live a more normal, conventional lifestyle. The performance shows how relationships change and grow over time based on life experiences.
Because this play uses the Iraq War to communicate the profound changes that war and time have over people, this performance is most likely one that will be very relatable. Hopefully it will be the perfect start to a great season for The Berlin Theatre.
If you go to this show, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the performance and the new Berlin Theatre. Check out The Berlin Theatre’s Facebook page for more information on this show and others.
