On Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013, more than 40 Vassar alums gathered at the Woolly Mammoth Theater at 641 D Street, NW for a special viewing of America All Better!!, presented by the infamous Second City team out of Chicago. The evening was filled with laughter, as the improv team expertly wove in and out of political themes with sketches that hit right at the heart of what life in D.C. is all about.
After the show, alums were welcomed by Woolly Mammoth Managing Director Jeff Herrmann ‘92, who provided a brief background on the theater, as well as a sneak peek into the list of upcoming performances. The group was also given the opportunity to meet and mingle with the Second City performers.
