Throughout her run on General Hospital, Brown appeared on stage in productions of Much Ado About Nothing, The Rainmaker, and in January, 2001 in a critically praised production of Cyrano de Bergerac.
In April 2001, the daily grind of daytime television took its toll on Brown who felt it was time to seek out new challenges. In a decision that shocked her peers and fans around the world, she said, "It's hard to be locked down with one character for five years, no matter how wonderfully complicated she is. I feel like I'm closing a great chapter of my life and that now it's time to start writing another.
General Hospital" fans around the world pleaded with the actress in tens of thousands of letters sent to ABC and also directly to Disney (the parent company of ABC) Chairman Michael Eisner to change her decision. The outpouring of affection to keep Brown on the show hit magazines and newspapers around the world but ultimately she held to her conviction that it was time to move on.
TV Guide, the magazine that voted Sarah one of the finest actors in 1996, the year she began General Hospital, bid the 26-year-old actress a touching farewell in May, 2001 saying "We'll miss Brown, a superb, ferocious actress of unparalleled complexity." Brown promises that what is past is merely prologue and that her journey is only beginning.
