Fusion is fascinating! I went to the Synetic theater expecting the musical Jekyll and Hyde. Instead, I got a ticket to 90 minutes of music, acting, gymnastics, dance, lights, film, special effects and not one spoken word. It was truly a spectacular theatrical experience!!! Other perks! 1. I went to a pay what you can preview! 2. free parking in... More

I have been attending Synetic's SIlent Shakespeare series for years - your first reaction will be that Shakespeare without the text just cannot work. Trust me, it does. The story and emotions are conveyed through movement, costumes, original music and inventive staging (for The Tempest a water pool covered most of the stage evoking the sea and island setting of...

We stumbled across this theater while seeking Metro access from our hotel. We pondered the worthiness of this theater for my birthday evening and I am SO pleased we took the plunge. The theater is very spacious and comfortable. Our last minute seats were perfect (2 X $45) for the presentation of The Three Musketeers. What a witty, humorous and... More

We came accross this Synetic Theater a little by coincidence, and what a tremendous surprise we got. This is theather is the most professional way at the most affordable price. The Three Musketeers was entertaining, funny, very well done and truly unique, which is impressive considering the high standards of such a tale. The actors were superb. The special effects... More

We have been to Synetic many times, and we have almost always enjoyed the performances. They are very inventive and unlike most dance theaters you will go to. In my opinion, their wordless Shakepearean performances are the best. And the Metro stop couldn't be more convenient!

I have been to several of the Synetic Theatre's productions of Shakespeare plays without words. And I will be back for more. Without dialogue, it is useful to know the plot line. But the acting is so powerful, that's not even necessary.

Synetic's brand of theater blends narrative, movement, technology and a visceral approach that's compelling. While not every show is a home run, they are consistently inventive. The theater is easily reached by Metro. There's not much around for dinner/drinks, so you're better off eating elsewhere and then driving/training to the theater. It's a 5-minute walk from the Crystal City metro... More

Beloved and I went to see Jekyll and Hyde. Not having done my homework I did not realize this was a wordless show. It was a great surprise that the lead and supporting cast were phenomenal. My thinking was this would be campy, and although there were moments where they came close to the campy line...a Michael Jacksonesqe dance number... More

Play is a different take on the old story. No dialogue. The basic story is okay & the actor playing the main character is pretty good w/a lot of physical flexibility required. Uses dancers in gas masks & a big TV as important parts which frankly I didn't get.

Synetic is one of the top theatre companies in the DC metro area. We see many theatrical productions around the country each year, and Synetic is on the top of our list. You can bet that the shows will have incredible production values - lighting, original music, and choreography are always top notch. The talent of the performers is astounding.... More
