What a fantastic theatrical. Something just a little different. I had friends in from Ecuador with a slight language barrier but they were able to pick up on this easily. The story line was very well portrayed even without words.

Today we saw our second production at Synetic Theater. It was brilliant, acrobatic, sexy, musical, and beautiful. The productions are all wordless. How can that be for a Shakespeare production? Take my word for it--it works! The producers have such a fantastic imagination. All of...More

We went with friends to watch the count of Montecristo. The show was excellent despite the financial limitations placed on such small company and yet they clearly have the discipline of any international colleagues. For purists note the many historical errors which can be attributed...More

Yes, the first time I went to a Shakespeare play at Synetic, and learned that no words would actually be spoken, I was.... Speechless. Shakespeare without words? How is that even possible? But not only is it possible, Synetic does it brilliantly. Now I'm hooked...More

This theater is small-ish and cozy so there really are no bad seats. So, the theater is great. I was there and saw A Midsummer Night's Dream… which was good and strange. Most plays have some level of interpretation but this one was… out there...More

I have now seen two shows at Synetic - Portrait of Dorian Gray and Midsummer Night's Dream. Both were beautifully done, and the actors all flawlessly blend silent expression, dance, and acrobatics. The shows at Synetic have a rawer feel than those of other theatre...More
