We've been long time subscribers to this theater and have enjoyed every season. They take risks and bring interesting and edgy stuff to DC. Some of the stuff is terrific, and some isn't but it is interesting and thought provoking. Looking forward to the new season!

We bought tickets on a night that the theatre works with a neighboring restuarant to host a dinner and theatre night. I am sorry I cannot remember the name of the restuarant. The meal was fantastic and the play was very entertaining and well produced. The acting was very good and my family enjoyed the evening tremendously.

High production values in a venue where every seat is good. Many of the plays are premiers and some have transferred to New York stages. A long history has also built an excellent company of actors. DETROIT is the most recent show that I saw and it was very well done.

I recently saw the play "Detroit" at Woolly Mammoth and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The play, like all I've seen at Woolly Mammoth, was thought-provoking and very well-staged. The space this theater occupies is simply perfect for the type of regional theater it is striving to be. And, there are great restaurants all-around. Try the margaritas at Oyamel right next... More

we went to see "Detroit" and it was very good (but not great). the staging was interesting as they reconfigured the theater to put the stage in the middle of an audience that was slice into two halves. the chance to see something done differently plus the intimate setting of the theater mkae it an interesting place to catch a...

If you want "Hello Dolly" or equivalent, go somewhere else. If you want gritty, creative, well-acted and well-staged plays that will challenge you, make you think, push your limits, here's the place. Woolly is led by the amazingly modest and enormously talented Howard Schalwitz, their artistic director. Howard's open, intensely curious, creative mind leads Woolly to offer plays from a... More

I visited "The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity", which was sometimes very good, and some parts average. The monologues were a bit too long, especially in the beginning. The play had to catch up some tempo. The theatre is a cozy place, audience is a real mix of young and old. Woolly is a relaxed place, very nice staff and... More

My husband and I saw "Mr. Burns a post electric play." It was our first time at this theatre. The theatre is two levels, we were assigned seats in the middle section two thirds of the way back. The seats were very comfortable with a lot of leg room. I would not want to sit in the balcony, appears that... More
