TimeLine enjoyed a great evening celebrating the 2009-10 Chicago theatre season last night, celebrating with friends and colleagues from this amazing theatre community, and capping the night with the 2010 Equity Jeff Award for Outstanding Production, Play (Midsize Theater) for The Farnsworth Invention!
Here’s a little of what Artistic Director PJ Powers wrote in a congratulatory email to the cast and production team of The Farnsworth Invention this morning:
In the hectic rush of accepting the award last night I did not properly articulate my incredible appreciation and admiration for all of you. From our extensive design and production meetings, through rehearsals crammed upstairs putting the pieces together, and then a raucous 15-week run — it was never anything short of thrilling to come to work with all of you and bring this show to life. Many thanks.
Today we send congratulations to all the deserving nominees and winners in all categories, with a special shout out to those involved in The Farnsworth Invention for their well-deserved recognition, and the other nominees from TimeLine productions: Cast and production teams for All My Sons and ‘Master Harold’ … and the Boys; The Farnsworth Invention ensemble, director Nick Bowling and lighting designer Keith Parham; All My Sons director Kimberly Senior; ‘Master Harold’ scenic designer Timothy Mann; and actors Rob Fagin (nominated for his performance as Philo T. Farnsworth in The Farnsworth Invention) and our own Company Member Janet Ulrich Brooks, who was nominated in both the supporting and principal actress categories for her performances in When She Danced and All My Sons.
All of us at TimeLine are so glad to be a part of this awesome Chicago theatre community, and thank the Joseph Jefferson Committee for the honor of being recognized for doing what we love to do!
