My wife and I saw "We Are Proud to Present" at this theater, which is about the German occupation of Namibia (Sudwestafrika), and our review is mixed, in that I would give the performance an excellent and she would rate it average. Thus, the rating we show splits the difference. The presentation seemed to have some improvisation in it, though... More

In this theater, the shows are small scale and typically have a social or political commentary (the liberal side). I've been to several shows and purchased my first 6-pack of tickets this year. I'm really excited to see what ideas will be shared in new and refreshing ways. I've seen shows that deal with current culture (political campaign, Supreme Court... More

I have been to the Wooly Mammoth Theatre twice and enjoyed myself each time. The theater design is very modern and the performances are contemporary and often edgy. It is an intimate and comfortable venue where each seat provides an ample view of the performance and production without feeling crowded. It doesn’t hurt that there is a good selection of... More

We picked up a leaflet at Sunday brunch in Busboys & Poets and booked for the same night. We wanted to go to the theatre during our 10 days in DC and this proved to be a great alternative to the Kennedy Centre which was showing the Lion King (at exorbitant prices) and the apparently eternal comedy 'Sheer Madness'. The... More

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
