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

considerably different than the play - it may help to be familiar with the story. As always, a wonderful Synetic show.

I am a committed Synetic fan who especially likes their "silent Shakespeare" productions. This was among the very best. And probably the funniest. Only the SPLASHING is serious.

More Information



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.
