Fountain of You is an irreverent, feminist musical satirizing our preoccupation with youth and beauty, and the patriarchal system underlying it all. When a thirty-something actress is suddenly aged out of the industry, she undergoes an unconventional spa procedure in the hopes of getting her old life back. But it sets her on a whole new path to achieve true power and equality… at a cost.

Both Chiao and Solmon indicate “We aim to tell stories with complicated female characters front and center, with unflinching honesty and an irreverent sense of humor. We wrote the show we wanted to see: a show about funny, complicated women taking up space in the world.”

“The central question this musical asks is: Why do we judge women on their youthfulness and attractiveness, rather than on their competence and capability? We are thrilled to be producing this brand-new musical” adds The Z Artistic Director, Bart Kuebler.

Fountain of You begins previews Thursday, March 17. Press Opening is Saturday, March 19 at 7:30pm and runs through April 3. Performances run Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm; Saturday and Sundays at 3:00pm. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the box office at 757-499-0317.
