Fuente Ovejuna receives superb reviews
10/23/22 – New York. Fuente Ovejuna by Lope de Vega. Reviews about Maria Fontanals playing Laurencia, one of the lead roles:
Claro está que debemos un aparte muy especial al trabajo potente de María Fontanals, quien se crece cada vez que pisa un escenario en una nueva labor. María es una actriz muy especial, con un poderío muy especial y una presencia que no se pasa por alto. Impacto Latino
La actriz oriunda de Barcelona, Maria Fontanals, se entrega en cuerpo y alma a su personaje: una mujer indomable que le da su rostro a una revuelta social por la justicia. Su actuación fue visceral, honesta y absolutamente desgarradora. El monólogo ante su padre es el punto más mágico de toda la pieza: la transformación de la víctima en heroína, de la doncella en la fiera, la consagración de una actriz que, simplemente, lo puede todo.

…..Laurencia (María Fontanals, fantastic in the role). Thinking Theater NYC
