11/15/2014 New York – Review of FEDERICO VUELVE A NACER: “The maximal aesthetic insanity was beautifully conveyed by the exquisite actress Maria Fontanals, and gesture, word, madness, intonation and inflexions made her “Crazy Queen” a visual delight which persuaded us to believe she was playing an invisible piano just by touching the edge of the writer’s desk with her fingers. That’s how powerful her performance was“. Arte y Teatro en Nueva York. See full review.

11/15/2014 Nueva York – Review of LORKEANDO: “The Spanish Maria Fontanals honored the Granada poet with much grace, sensitivity and a magnificent interpretation of “Verde que te quiero verde”, “Murió al amanecer”, “Es verdad”, “Gacela del Mercado matutino” and “Soneto de la dulce queja”.  Arte y Teatro en Nueva York.
