Review - Not Enough Air - Central Square Theater - The Arts Fuse Blog

New review of Not Enough Air (with photos - but no credit, boo) from The Arts Fuse blog:

…director Melia Benussen wields a sure hand with her talented leads: Gottlieb supplies an engagingly strong-willed Treadwell, a woman who unites intelligence and compassion. The actress expertly conveys panic at the mounting demands of her imagination — a genuine fear of being sucked under. Marianna Bassham’s sprite of the unconscious gives off frightening vibes, and Craig Mathers, as Mac, pulls off the neat trick of defending sanity without descending into whining or self-righteousness. “Not Enough Air” draws an impressive portrait of the woman artist as psychological warrior.

Wow!  Such CRAZY buzz for Not Enough Air!  I LOVE IT!

Last year, TimeLine Theatre presented the World Premiere of Not Enough Air in Chicago.  They were kind enough to give Central Square Theater a shout out for having such a fabulous time with the East Coast Premiere - and they used my photos!  How cool is that?!

Check out the all-in-one consolidation of reviews and photos on their blog.  And if you’re ever in Chicago, go see something they do - because we’ve all gotta share the theater love!

Dear TimeLine Theatre: If I’m ever in Chicago when you need a production photographer, you know how to find me!  ;-)

Review - Not Enough Air - Central Square Theater - Boston Phoenix

Holy crazy awesome review day, Batman!

The Boston Phoenix, as I’ve mentioned before, has had a hard time getting a critic to a show at Central Square Theater this season.  If we all recall, they sent someone to Harriet Jacobs during the very last weekend - which was already sold out!

This time, for Not Enough Air, they’re “doin’ it right”, and managed to get our favorite, Carolyn Clay to the actual press opening.  The review starts on page one here, but the photo in question is on page 2.

In case I haven’t mentioned it a bazillion times already - this show is awesome.  You should totally come see it.  AIR10, people.  AIR10.

QUICK!  Go to Stagesource.org (which, by the way is a fantastic resource for actors, artists, and theaters in the greater Boston area if you’re ever looking for one!).

On their homepage - in the feature spot - is MY PHOTO!  And then!  They are fantastic enough to have a photo credits page - and I’M ON IT!

Well done, Stagesource - I love you!

Review - Not Enough Air - Central Square Theater - Boston Globe

Oh, Louise Kennedy, how I heart you.  It’s been quite a while since you’ve come to Central Square Theater, and I’m so glad you came to Not Enough Air.

This is fast becoming the iconic shot of the show.  I have mixed feelings about it, as it doesn’t show the leading lady’s face, but the composition is fantastic and it shows the basis of the struggle of the play:  does one submit to their work or to their personal life?

If you had to choose, which would it be?  Your work or your love?  Your art or your relationships?  Your work or your art?

Review - Not Enough Air - Central Square Theater - Boston Herald

Jenna liked it!

Which is awesome, because it really is a fantastic story.  In case I’ve never mentioned that before.

Jenna used two of my photos - the first one, not my favorite, but it does give you a bit of a sense of the play (Sophie, as a female who was, in a sense, trapped by her life/marriage - even her regimented and negotiated life with her husband, Mac), and the second, I adore.  (Is that too egotistical?  Am I allowed to adore my own work?)  It’s a perfect representation of the fact that Sophie’s main character was always, always on her mind, even in the background, furiously creating a work of meaning.

Anyway - here’s the review, and don’t forget, AIR10 will get you $10 tickets to any performance - and it runs through 3/14.

Not Enough Air - Central Square Theater

Have you ever been so involved with your work or your art that it makes you, well, a little crazy?

That’s pretty much what we have here, in the Nora Theatre Company’s production of Not Enough Air.

The trial of Ruth Snyder was immensely popular in its day.  If you don’t know, in 1925, Ruth Snyder conspired with her lover to kill her husband, was convicted, and was the first woman to be put to death by the state of New York in the 20th century.  Sophie Treadwell, a journalist-turned-playwright was fascinated by the story, and stories like it, of women who were, in a sense, trapped in their own lives.  When Sophie got kicked off the story from a journalist’s perspective, she decided to write her own version, which ended up being the catalyst for her play, Machinal.

Not Enough Air tells us the story of Sophie getting caught up in the maelstrom of telling the stories of women like Ruth Snyder.  There’s is so much going on in this play - a bit of feminism, a bit of play-within-a-play, darkness, death, humor - it’s got it all.  It’s fascinating, and wonderfully done.  The script is amazing, the actors are fantastic.  Anne Gottleib plays a brillant Sophie, and an intense and kind of creepy (to be honest) Marianna Bassham (wearing grey above) plays the role of “Young Woman” - who reminds us all of Ruth, and all the women like her who have been trapped in their own lives.

As per usual, I’ve got a discount code:  AIR10 will get you $10 tickets to any show.  And I highly recommend it.
