Leave time to read the notes before the play; see the brief video in the theatre lobby; and have dinner first...this is a long show but worthwhile.

Don't even try to find parking. It's DC in the summer.

Not good to attend if you are sensitive to disturbing presentations of enslaved africans, upsetting images, or use of n-word. Would NOT attend with someone I didn't feel super comfortable with.

Woolley Mammoth is a GEM! They dare to bring funny, unpredictable shows - the best in the area! I will try anything they do! (this was the first time I was not 100% satisfied).

Even with the current Metro issues: take extra time, don't even try to find parking

Before or after in Chinatown - easy 2 block walk. Be aware that this is "Chinatown" in name only. Most of the restaurants are very touristy and uninspired.

I arrived early enough for street parking but the venue offered validated parking.

I heard a Metro announcement that there will be closures at midnight starting on June 3. This is a long play and the post show discussion could put you in a bind it you take the Metro. Check ahead of time or use the $10 parking validation.

They plan to have post-show discussions during this play's run. I found my discussion added greatly to my overall experience. This play has a lot of non-pc stuff in it and the discussion helped lots of the folks who stayed.

I went on the Metro, but found out they validate parking across the street -- it's $10.

Play with the computer tools out in the lobby that are provided during "The Nether" run at the Wooley Mammoth.

There are garages right across the street if coming in inclement weather. Otherwise TAKE THE METRO

The weather was freezing. I wore jeans. There is a place for your coats which we found AFTER the play. You don't want to schlep coats if possible..
