Use Metro. Went on a Saturday night, used the Metro trip planner and arrived at Crystal City exactly when promised.

As usual Synetic did a fabulous job. It's the only theatre in town offering this type of physical, gymnastic, and acrobatic performance. Also features original music. Unique. Entertaining. Highly recommended. Go see it!!

If you loved the 1981 movie "Excalibur", you will not be disappointed in this wonderful production which, with only a few deviations (a nod to the recent "King Arthur" movie and Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Mists of Avalon"), stays VERY close. ...continued

Awesome Synetic performance, as usual. I'm really surprised that there were so many empty seats! People are missing out! If you don't want to get wet, sit at least 4-5 rows back.

Synetic kicks off its inaugural season in Crystal City with a new, wordless epic – King Arthur. Drawing from a rich pool of centuries-old myths and legends, King Arthur weaves together mystery, magic, heroes and romance in an adaptation that will see the legend reborn in Synetic’s signature mixture of movement, music, combat and drama.

And to make a splashy entrance into Crystal City, Synetic will showcase the company’s fluid movement style on its first-ever water stage!
