Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company's "Stupid Fucking Bird"

In a presentation last night at National Theatre, TheatreWashington announced the 2014 Helen Hayes Awards nominees. Who cleaned up? Woolly's Stupid Fucking Bird caught the biggest worm, with eight nominations. Shakespeare Theatre Company's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Round House Theatre's Glengarry Glen Ross netted seven. Close behind them are several productions with six nominations, including the visiting Book of Mormon, Ford's and Signature's Hello, Dolly!, and Folger's Romeo & Juliet.
