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.

This is a small local theatre that offers original and unique shoes. I recently saw Famous Puppet Death Scenes and have to say it was nothing like I have ever seen before. Funny, disturbing, and overall quite touching. Keep up the great work!

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
