World Premiere – Newspaper columnist Andy Kramer is laid off when a corporate takeover downsizes the City Chronicle. In retaliation, Andy fabricates a letter to his column from an imaginary homeless woman named “Jane Doe” who announces she will kill herself on the 4th of July because of the heartless state of the world. When the letter goes viral, Andy is forced to hire a homeless woman to stand-in as the fictitious Jane Doe. She becomes an overnight internet sensation and a national women’s movement is ignited.

30th Annual Ovation Awards

OvationAwardsLogo
The Ovation Awards are the only peer-judged theatre awards in Los Angeles, created to recognize excellence in theatrical performance, production and design in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Friends of The Fountain, we are pleased to report to you that we had a real good night at the Ovation Awards this year. Arm in arm, side by side with our fellow LA theatre folx we bathed in the glorious splendor of the Theatre at Ace Hotel on Monday, January 13th and watched a dazzling show unfold before us. Dance, comedy, and moving speeches as the LA theatre community doled out the high prizes of our craft. We were very pleased with the results. Without further adieu:
