L'assassinat de Président Abraham Lincoln ici le 14 avril 1865 a éclipsé le théâtre pour la plupart de son histoire. Ford's s'est ouvert que quatre ans avant le soir fatidique. Restauré à son apparence de 1865, Ford's est encore un lieu de spectacle. Au sous-sol, un musée de Lincoln montre des objets de l'assassinat, y compris le fusil utilisé par John Wilkes Booth lorsqu'il a tué Lincoln. Des souvenirs de la vie de Lincoln y sont aussi étalés. Des garde forestiers du National Park Service donnent des exposés tous les heures. En face du théâtre est la Maison Petersen, où Lincoln est mort.

Two theater companies, Theatre Conspiracy and Fraudulent Productions, have their home in this arts center in Adams-Morgan. With their offbeat and frequently controversial exhibits, both companies are known for experimental theater in the style of "off-off-Broadway." Theatre Conspiracy features cutting-edge feminist works with a focus on women and their roles in society. Plays by experimental but firmly established writers such as Peter Handke, Guenter Grass and Karel Capek have also been staged here.
This successful company is one of the top local theaters in the city. With a focus on new works and playwrights, Woolly Mammoth is regarded as an artistically adventurous theater with little fear of either controversy or experimentation. Washington audiences are especially fond of Woolly Mammoth's preview performances, which include discussions of the work with a generous pay-what-you-can policy. Other community-oriented programs include a number of projects designed for area youth-at-risk, teacher-enrichment and eight free public readings of new plays each year. Woolly Mammoth also runs a popular program of acting classes through its Theatre School.
