The Woolly Mammoth has important works of a varied nature. If you find something that interests you, definitely go. The theater is conveniently located near the Metro and lots of restaurants. The venue is very comfortable with good seats all around. They have a wine,...More

Yikes! The shows are good, but some of them are really OUT THERE. Generally speaking, I'd warn this is not a company for kids or the easily offended.

In Washington during August it is almost impossible to find a show or a play that is showing because the venues seem to take a well-earned summer break. This was not the case with the Woolly Mammoth, a theatre that prides itself with being edgy...More

I enjoyed visiting this theater. Everyone was so nice! There was not a bad seat in the house. Nice refreshment offerings and comfortable seating. Get a stampede ticket (when available) two hours before the show for $20. Great value!!!

Not sure when Wooly Mammoth moved to D St, but love the location and the layout of the performance space. Just saw Familiar, a wonderful, warm, funny and emotionally rich play by Danai Gurira. Good view from anywhere in the fully modern and thought designed...More

I found a cheap fare from Orlando and fled to Washington for the duration of hurricane Irma in September 2017. The Wooly Mammoth was running "The Arsonists" which I'd seen as "The Firebugs" back in the early 1970s. The play had been political but not...More

We saw "Nothing to Lose But Our Chains" (presented by Second City), written by Felonious Monk, who also starred in this thought-provoking production. This is a "hip" theatre which produces new and innovative work in a compact space. The theatre has floor and tiered seating...More

We went to see Pike St. at the Mammoth. A truly sensational and emotionally draining one-woman production. If you want to see it, hurry: the run ends April 24, 2017. I'd somehow never seeen anything at the Woolly Mammoth before, in spite of living in...More

This is a good theatre that offers new and emerging works, usually those with a good dose of social commentary. The plays are always well presented and well acted. If you are poor, they have pay-what-you-can nights and if you're on a tight budget the...More
