Stack up all the mad scientists who have ever conducted abominable experiments in a secret laboratory -- from Victor Frankenstein up through Dr. Evil -- and all of them together are not half as brilliant, deranged and flat-out horrifying as Dr. Moreau. More terrifying than any of H.G. Wells' other creations (and that's counting the aliens of The War of the Worlds and the Invisible Man), Dr. Moreau and his private zoo/nursery of half-man, half-animal "children" have thrilled and repulsed audiences since first appearing in print in 1896. Now Synetic artistic director Paata Tsikurishvili will direct and appear in a fresh adaptation of Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau. Set to original music and charged with riveting dialogue, this highly physical tale creates a horrifying world you will long remember. Learn More

this was our first Synetic event, and we really enjoyed it. i do wish that i had reviewed what the Tempest was about before seeing it to better understand the performance. i wonder if Synetic has thought about adding a Greek chorus or perhaps some sort of subtitle to explain the action. in any event, we had a great time. performing in water was particularly interesting as were the costumes, visuals and music. it really involved all of the senses to make for a great evening out. we also would like to comment on the signs pointing out where Synetic was located, the free parking, and the very spacious theatre seats all were excellent. we are now great fans of Synetic.
Splash Zone Seats:
The first three rows of the theater will be in the “splash zone.” Patrons in the “Splash Zone” should expect to get splashed with water from the water stage. Because it’s live theater, this could range from droplets to your daily recommended water intake. The theater will provide ponchos to patrons in these rows.
