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 the play). The text based performances are a little bit less interesting to me, but still well worth going. Convenient to Crystal City Metro and free parking evenings and weekends.
