Previews Begin for West Coast Premiere of “El Nogalar” at the Fountain

Here we go! Preview performances are now officially underway for El Nogalar at the Fountain! Previews started this weekend with early audiences getting their first look at our West Coast premiere by Tanya Saracho, directed by Laurie Woolery. El Nogalar opens Saturday, January 28.

Previews are “work-in-progress” performances prior to the official opening this Saturday night. During previews, the director and design team watch and take notes, still tweaking and adjusting the production.

Deborah Lawlor

A special highlight of the weekend was the arrival of Fountain Producing Artistic Director Deborah Lawlor to the preview performance on Sunday afternoon. Deborah is still recovering from a compressed-nerve injury in her spine. But she was there at the Fountain this weekend for the Sunday matinee! Still a little wobbly on her feet, she looked great and is improving every day! She expressed how happy she was to be back at the Fountain since sustaining this injury on December 31st in her home.   Welcome back, Deb! We love you!

Audiences arrive for the first preview of "El Nogalar" on Saturday night.
