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

We went to the "Black Side of the Moon" this past weekend. Great, intimate theater with not a bad seat in the house. The very talented cast was from Chicago. I'm sure they aren't there for long, but I would definitely go back to Woolly...More

Fun, inspired, and provocative show with a great group of talents. I would recommend to friends living in the DC area or visiting.

Woolly is the best small theater in DC. Engaging performances, top level talent, fresh new stories, and excellent set design. I'll keep coming back.

We hadn't been to the Woolly Mammoth since the move years ago. This new spot is so much better and close to great restaurants. We saw Guards at the Taj. The actors were phenomenal. The show was dark, deep and disturbing. We loved it. However,...More

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")....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...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...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...More
