  • I have been coming to plays and musicals since Woolfe Theatre was called East Cooper Theatre Company. Since then, this amazing theatre company has moved from Mt. Pleasant to a former sausage wharehouse that had stood empty for fifty years. The board has raised about $850,000, but it is simply not enough money! Everyone who helped restore the former building did an such an " overwhelming " job. If you want to see a variety of plays and musicals done in a relaxed and casual atmosphere, then come to Woolfe Street Playhouse. I recently saw Othello, and it was wonderful! Everyone does such an amazing job. I simply love coming here.
  • Great intimate theater for plays! Saw Othello and enjoyed a Chardonnay! Fantastic seating to see actor Douglas Scott Streater return to his Charleston roots to play the role! Wonderful performance!!
