We've attended both dramatic and comedic performances at the WM, and enjoyed everything. The space is small and intimate- don't think that there's a bad seat in the house. I love their selection of shows, even when they seem bizarre (eg, "Famous Puppet Death Scenes"). The box office has always been efficient and friendly. There are lots of nearby restaurants... More

Cool, fun, off the beaten path shows in a prime location in Penn Quarter. There is a small bar for drinks but tons of options outside the theater as well. As far as seating goes, the theater is small, so unless you absolutely want to be on the front row, for a lot less money, you can be on the... More

This is a beautiful facility that's home to unique, creative shows. The relatively small size of theater makes for intimate performances -- it's easy to see the expressions on the performers' faces and the details in the sets and staging. Wooly Mammoth's large, airy lobby/atrium area has an industrial feel -- all steel, cement, and glass, with wood and brick... More

After years of attending a show or two a year, I've finally taken the plunge and ordered season tickets as this reliable theatre. Woolly offers immersive experiences for theatre-goers, inviting patrons to "get into character" with creative lobby designs and interactions. The plays at this venue are often humorous, and in my experience, always quality.

We're both long time patrons & volunteer ushers at WOOLLY! It's one of the most contemporary of venues in the Penn Quarter area of DC. While WOOLLY is known for it's 'out there' plays ... it also hosts shows from out of town. For example, we just saw last week a Second City of Chicago comedy show called "Let Them... More

We just made our first visit to Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company to see their production of "Zombie: The American" by director/playwright Robert O'Hara ("Antebellum" & the Obie Award winning "Bootycandy", both of which have been produced at Woolly.) Huge "Walking Dead" fan that I am, I'll admit they had me at 'zombies' & Mr. O'Hara's sci-fi thriller/black comedy set in... More

Woolly Mammoth is a medium budget company which specializes in producing "innovative scripts with something challenging to say" They have a top notch acting company and very high production values. I attended their current production "Zombie The American" . While very well done and featuring a great first act, the the second act and the resolution left something to be... More

I was here today for Chad Beckim's sparsely-set Lights Rise on Grace. The theater again, was the perfect venue for a tightly- scripted drama that required focus on three colorful characters and the multi-roles they portrayed. While I enjoyed the a la Tarantino take on crass verbiage, their individual stories tender moments were lost in the rapid script and the... More

If you consider yourself adventuresome when it comes to theater, look no further than Woolly when in DC. Woolly is a leading supporter locally and nationally of new work. Its performance space is perfect for new work -- intimate, fresh, and scrappy.

Woolly is a small local theatre in a great area of DC. The theatre is small, not a bad seat in the place. Clean and friendly, easy to get in and out of. Easy parking across the street, many nearby restaurants for a meal or snack.
