January 4, 2010 - The second half of the theatre season kicks off in January.
Noel Coward’s classic Present Laughter, currently in previews, will open at the American Airlines Theatre on January 21 for a limited engagement. Victor Garber stars as a matinee idol with a very high opinion of himself who finds his London flat invaded by a collection of eccentrics.
Time Stands Still begins its limited engagement at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on January 5. Starring Laura Linney as a photojournalist dealing with the aftermath of a roadside bombing, the play also features Alicia Silverstone, Brian d'Arcy James and Eric Bogosian.
A View from the Bridge returns to Broadway at the Cort Theatre. Currently in previews and opening on January 24, the Arthur Miller play stars Liev Schreiber as a longshoreman and Scarlett Johansson as his niece who falls in love with a newly arrived immigrant, prompting her uncle’s jealous rage.

On January 10, Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, Burn the Floor, In the Next Room (or the vibrator play), and Ragtime will present their final performances. Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher’s one-woman show, and the musical Finian’s Rainbow come to end on January 17, and Bye Bye Birdie will wave good-bye on January 24.
