BWW Interview: A Special Two Part Theatre Life with Howard Shalwitz. Part One: The Ea Photo BWW Interview: A Special Two Part Theatre Life with Howard Shalwitz. Part One: The Early Years
by Elliot Lanes - Mar 10, 2020

Today's subject was kind enough to give me an hour of his time in the balcony of the place he lived his theatre life for almost 40 years.  I'm sure there isn't a person here in DC who would argue that Howard Shalwitz was one of the most influential minds in the DC theatre community as the Artistic Director of Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company. Under Shalwitz, Woolly Mammoth produced some of the most thought provoking, wild, and sometimes shocking pieces of theatre this area has ever seen. Shalwitz stepped down in 2018 and the company is now run by Maria Manuela Goyanes. Mr. Shalwitz remains as Artistic Director Emeritus.
