Mission Statement

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 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.

Housed in a charming two-story complex in Hollywood, California, The Fountain has grown into one of the most successful of the smaller venues in the busy Los Angeles theatre world. With the addition of Producing Director/Dramaturg Simon Levy and Producer/Director Bennett Bradley (in 1993), The Fountain Theatre has an artistic staff with a wealth of experience that is quickly bringing the theatre’s work to the attention of larger and larger audiences.


The Fountain Theatre is an award winning non-profit producing organization dedicated to providing a creative home for our diverse community and giving voice to under-served communities throughout Los Angeles. The mission of The Fountain Theatre aims to support the social and cultural life of Los Angeles and the nation, as evidenced by our purposeful selections of plays and events that reflect contemporary issues such as race, religion, and the economy. The Fountain Theatre sits in Los Angeles County's 3rd District, the most ethnically diverse district in the county and perhaps the nation. The Fountain has been celebrated for almost 25 years for its unwavering commitment to the underrepresented voices of our community. Our unique role in the arts community and in Los Angeles as a whole works to ensure that important under-recognized issues are brought to public attention and given the exposure that they deserve.
