A Mammoth Deal

By washingtonpost.com

The theater bargains just keep coming. Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company is offering pay-what-you-can previews of its new production, "Big Death & Little Death" at 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow. This is a world premiere for both the play and its venue. The play is the inaugural production for the company's new theater at Seventh and D streets NW. It is a dark comedy about two teenagers who may have witnessed their mother's death in a car accident. Tickets are sold at the door each night starting at 6:30. They are first-come, first-served with a limit of two per person. If you miss this steal, regular performances begin Thursday with ticket prices ranging from $30 to $48.

Apocalyptic adolescences? Suburban comedy?

Those are the subjects I've heard in reference to WMTC's "Big Death & Little Death" premiere production. Has anyone seen it? Any of you pay-what-you can attendees think it's not even worth the $5 you forked over? My theater buddy & I are considering tickets.

If any of you do go, remember to use the discount code: BDEX when ordering to save $5 on every ticket. :)

Saw it and thought it was interesting. Certainly much riskier than the familiar rehash of usual theatre standbys.

It is a first run production and the first act needed some editing. By the second act it pulled together...
The second act was stunning.

Pay-what-what you can attendees get a good deal!
