The show was fantastic! Being wordless didn't seem to limit them in any fashion, as the story was told masterfully. The music, dance, exaggerated efforts of the actors; all came together well. Nothing was spared for the hilarious romp in the woods with the crossed lovers & the spectacle of the fairies' battle was awesome. I enjoyed the addition of Puck's "birth" & of course was amazed at the actor's limitless flexibility! Beautiful, funny, romantic, playful; the best rendition I've seen yet!

Synetic brings this smash hit to Rosslyn Spectrum after its sold-out run at the Kennedy Center. Don’t miss your chance to see this fantastical, darkly playful game of love, mistaken identity, and the supernatural. Synetic’s fourth installment of its “Silent Shakespeare” series (following wordless adaptations of Hamlet, Macbeth, and Romeo and Juliet) brings this time-honored favorite to new life with signature bravado and dramatic physicality.
