Synetic Theater to Present 'THREE MEN IN A BOAT' this May
Synetic Theater will conclude their 2013/14 Season in May with a new adaptation of Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To say nothing of the dog). Press night will be Thursday, May 8 at 8pm.
The production features DC theater stars Tim Getman, Rob Jansen and Tom Story making their Synetic Theater debuts and Synetic Company Member Alex Mills who was most recently seen as the title character in Hamlet ...the rest is silence. Still fresh and witty after more than a century, Jerome K. Jerome's delightful travelogue tells the story of three young men suffering from a severe case of "overwork". Accompanied by their dutiful terrier Montmorency, they take a boating holiday through the English countryside, getting into one satirically hilarious predicament after another along the way. Adapted from an English novel consistently ranked as one of the funniest of all time, this production will be directed by a renowned area director Derek Goldman and choreographed by Synetic's Resident Choreographer Irina Tsikurishvili.
Founded in 2001 by the husband and wife team of Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, Synetic Theater is the region's premier contemporary theater, fusing dynamic art forms-drama, text, movement, acrobatics, dance, film, and original music-to create a unique and original whole. Synetic has received a total of 92 Helen Hayes Award nominations and 24 Awards for directing, choreography, acting, costume design, and resident play.
