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

We enjoyed ourselves at the show, but have come to have quite high expectations for Synetic. The premise was relevant and at times moving, the choreography was good and the performance well executed. However, it lacked any "oh wow" moment that the physical theater of Synetic has always given me in the past (the painting scene from Taming of the Shrew, and love scene from Romeo and Juliet come to mind).

This brand new, original play from Synetic’s aclaimed director Paata Tsikurishvili and writer Ben Cunis tells the story of a young man whose entrance into military life causes him to re-examine the meaning of home, family, love and honor. Rife with the stunning visuals and remarkably physical style Synetic Theater is known for, this is a wartime thriller, unexpectedly and expertly crafted for stage.
