Q&A with ‘Time Stands Still’ set designer Walt Spangler

The loft is the backdrop for the play written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies. It’s about photojournalist Sarah Goodwin who returns home after being badly injured covering the war in Iraq. She struggles to settle back into life with her partner James, also a journalist. Here are highlights from a recent interview with set designer Walt Spangler.
