Laura Linney will return to the stage on Tuesday night for the first time since the death of her father.
The actress dropped out of Broadway’s Time Stands Still over the weekend following the passing of her playwright father Romulus Linney on Saturday.

She also missed the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, where she was honored with a Best Actress prize for her role in TV drama The Big C.

The lights of Broadway’s theatres will be dimmed for a minute on Wednesday to mark Linney’s death.
