The Fountain Theatre is a non-profit producing organization established in 1990 by co-Artistic Directors Deborah Lawlor and Stephen Sachs dedicated to providing a nurturing, creative home for multi-ethnic theatre and dance artists. Here we develop provocative new works or explore a unique vision of established plays that reflect the immediate concerns and cultural diversity of contemporary Los Angeles and the nation.
In an era of urban anxiety, ethnic hostility and wavering spirit, The Fountain offers a safe, supportive haven for a family of artists of varied backgrounds to gather, interact and inspire each other toward the creation of work that will ignite and illuminate the community from which it’s drawn and give creative voice to those who may not otherwise be heard.
The Fountain Theatre‘s activities include a year-round season of fully-produced new and established plays (30 world premieres and 38 U.S., West Coast, Southern California or Los Angeles premieres in 25 years, each reflecting a unique cultural voice and serving a distinctive ethnic community). We’re also the foremost presentors of Flamenco in Los Angeles; have a New Plays developmental series, Educational Outreach Programs, and national/international tours.
