Our Mission



nolaNOW Theatre is a non-profit theatre company founded by Madeline Kolker and Coco Guillot in and for New Orleans. Through the theater arts, nolaNOW strives to provide a progressive creative outlet that responds directly to the anxieties of living in the 21st-century.

We have a passion for sharing stories that challenge stereotypes, uplift marginalized voices, and demonstrate the societal impact of contemporary theater.

As part of our mission to embrace contemporary stories and voices, all of our produced plays have been written within the past ten years. At its core, nolaNOW values intimacy, mindfulness, and empathy, and hopes to encourage others to explore these three words as a result of our work.
