“A beautifully written and superbly acted play.”

We enjoy getting emails and online comments from our Fountain audiences as we open and run our stage productions. Keeping an open and ongoing dialogue between artists and audiences is vitally important to us. Preview audiences are now getting an early look at our Los Angeles Premiere of My Name Is Asher Lev — and they love what they’re seeing.  Audiences are leaping to their feet in standing ovations. Here are a few comments posted by patrons after seeing our first two previews this weekend:  

” A beautifully written and superbly acted play. Never have I seen a play where there is passion in every single scene, in every single line. A true theater-goer’s gift.” – Terry

“I thoroughly enjoyed this dynamic dramatic presentation based on the Chaim Potok  novel. The three member cast is strong and convincing in the multiple characters they portrayed. The play presents the relationship and strains in an orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn when the mother and father have to deal with a son impelled from childhood to draw and paint; artistic endeavors not valued by his family nor the Hasidic community in which they are embedded . The play offers a glimpse into the customs, religious practices and values of a Hasidic family.” – Zamira P.

This is one moving piece of theatre ! Bravo to all!” – Barbara G.

“I’m happy I was there! So wonderful!” – Rhoda 

“Loved My Name is Asher Lev! Get thee to the Fountain!” – Barbara B. 

We invite you to come see what folks are raving about. Discount previews continue this week, Wednesday through Friday. We officially open this Saturday, February 22nd and run to Apirl 19th.

The talented trio of actors play all the characters in the play directed by Stephen Sachs. The cast includes Jason Karasev, Anna Khaja and Joel Polis.  

Previews are early performances in front of an audience as the artistic and production team make final adjustments prior to opening.  It’s all part of the creative process and we so enjoy meeting our audiences after each performance and chatting about the issues of the play.
