The recipient of 24 Helen Hayes awards, Synetic Theatre is renowned for their innovative theater adaptations. The Tempest, the latest in their Shakespeare series, looks like it won't disappoint audiences seeking a unique out of the box theater experience.
We will meet for pre-show dinner, or appetizers & drinks in Crystal City at Kora (our group has a 6PM reservation) then walk over to Synetic to enjoy the show. Currently this event is scheduled for Saturday March 2. The show will run from Feb 21 - March 24.
More about The Tempest...
On the water-filled stage, Synetic’s visual poetry will bring Prospero’s magical island to life. A romantic drama of epic proportions emerges from the depths as spirits, monsters, witches, drunken fools and lithe lovers contort and cavort with all the passion and bravado you can imagine.
With The Tempest, Synetic presents the ninth installment in its renowned “Silent Shakespeare” series. Expect BIG things with this production: stunning set design complete with a water extravaganza, larger-than-life visual, acrobatics and the remarkably visceral experience Synetic is known for.
WANT THE CHEAPER TICKETS? BRAVE THE SPLASH ZONE & SAVE $15!
Patrons in the “Splash Zone” should expect to get splashed with water from our water stage. Because it’s live theater, this could range from droplets to your daily recommended water intake. Synetic Theater ponchos will be provided to patrons in the splash zone rows. Click here for a link to the seating chart.
$40 / $15 Students.
Note: If there is interest, I may try to get a group rate, but most likely this would entail commitment and pre-payment of tickets by attendees. I will watch for any recommendations you may have.
