Howard Shalwitz, cofounder and artistic director of D.C.’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, will step down after this season. At Georgetown Media Group’s next Cultural Leadership Breakfast, Thursday, Dec. 7, at the George Town Club, Shalwitz will look back on the company’s 40-year history and share his approach to creating cutting-edge theater.
Known equally for taking risks and for winning awards, Woolly Mammoth is one of the nation’s most innovative theater presenters. Launched in a church hall in 1980, it moved into its first permanent home, on D Street NW, in May of 2005.
