The music, costumes, and choreography were awesome and made the play come to life eventhough it was a silent production.

This was really good. It's not one of my favorite of Shakespeare's works, but I enjoyed it. Think it might be better without words. The performer who portrayed Puck moved in ways I didn't think a human body could.

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.
