NEW YORK ā€“ Laura Linney was to return to Broadway’s “Time Stands Still” on Tuesday night for the first time since her father’s death.

Romulus Linney, a prolific playwright, died Saturday in upstate New York.

The actress dropped out of the play over the weekend. She wasn’t on hand to accept her Golden Globe award Sunday night for her role in Showtime’s “The Big C.”
