TimeLine Company Member Janet Ulrich Brooks, who plays Sophie Treadwell in Not Enough Air, reflects on the play’s final weekend of performances:
We are in the last week of Not Enough Air, and what was such an exciting and rewarding experience is soon to be “old news.” Rehearsals have begun for The History Boys, we are in the throes of selecting the 2009-10 season, and time is taking us all in different directions.
For myself, I am mourning the fact that this my last week with this incredible ensemble!!! Mechelle, Danica, David, Terry and Zack … the best ensemble both sides of the Mississippi!
Not Enough Air has been an incredible ride and an experience like no other. Since this is a brand new play — and is really our creation — it will be difficult to step away. The sense of ownership is so strong compared to playing a role that numbers of other actresses have played through the years.
I’m so lucky to be where I am, getting to do what I do, working with such incredibly talented artists, for some of the smartest and most vital theatre audiences. I’m hoping for full houses this week. I want to share this play with as many people as possible.
But in the meantime, since I’m hosting the closing-night cast party at my home, I really need to get back to cleaning!
