Woolly's 35th season opens with a guillotine-sharp, contemporary-sounding satire that morphs into a real tragedy as it tells the true story of a fabulously wealthy, fashion-setting teenage drama queen whose last name could've well been Cyrus or Kardashian. But France's famed 18th-century monarch Marie Antoinette has her own issues dealing with fickle fame and fortune, especially as her once-loyal subjects begin to royally despise her in the midst of an economic downturn. Multi-award-winning playwright and Guggenheim fellow David Adjmi premiered his acclaimed work Stunning at Woolly, which welcomes him back, along with Woolly company member Kimberly Gilbert in the title role. New York Magazine calls Adjmi's version of the historical drama "marvelous, disturbing, revisionist." Learn More

The seats were great. I don't think there's a bad seat at the Olney Theater. Had a terrific evening. "Triumph of Love" was wonderfully entertaining. Not to be missed.

What do you do when the man you adore wants to kill you? You seduce him, disguised as a man impersonating another woman, while fending off the affections of both his uncle and his aunt, of course! With the assistance of some clever servants, Princess Léonide transforms herself to win the love of ravishing handsome and sheltered Prince Agis. But her disguises capture more hearts than she bargained for. With a lovely score, and a fanciful story, this bon bon of a musical will make your heart bloom.
“It’s bawdy. It’s whimsical,” explains Director Clay Hopper,“It’s full of gender-bending seductions and plot-twists that will make your head spin.”
