Miraculously retaining its comic timing and timeless wit more than a century later, Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) was originally published as a hilarious novel in 1889. Written as a travelogue, the lively story tells of three young men -- and a devoted terrier named Montmorency (played here by ... well, not a dog) -- on a boating holiday that quickly devolves into a series of absurd misadventures. Directed by Derek Goldman, this adaptation brings to life one of the funniest novels of all time in a must-see show. Learn More

This was our first Synetic Theater production, we were glad it was a show with some dialog and a classic tale so we were familiar with the plot. I like the premise of using movement/dance to interpret the story. The dancers did a great job, the sets were basic but creative. We enjoyed the show.

Synetic once again merges its unique physical theater style with text in its season closer, Don Quixote, written by Resident Playwright Roland Reed whose The Master and Margarita was nominated for the 2011 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Resident Play. Lost in the mystical world of his books, Don Quixote abandons his home and reality to become a wandering knight. This touching comedy, inspired by the surrealistic paintings of Dali and Bosch, brings the wonder of Quixote’s dreaming mind to life and focuses a satirical lens on what it means to be normal.
