Synetic Theater Stages MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, Now thru 3/22

Synetic Founding Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili will direct one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies, following the success of Synetic's production of Twelfth Night. Confirmed bachelor Benedick and the equally spirited and unwed Beatrice will spar, court and conspire in Synetic's 11th Wordless Shakespeare adaptation. Set in 1950's Las Vegas, this flirtatious and fiercely funny show will blow you away with rockin' tunes, rat packers, and dreamy chicks who will shake, rattle, and roll as only Synetic performers can! Synetic's lively interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing will delve into the true meaning of courtship, love, and commitment.

The show will run tonight, February 11 through March 22, 2015. Press opening will be Sunday, February 15 at 2 p.m.

Location: Synetic Theater, Crystal City, VA - 1800 S. Bell St., Arlington, VA 22202 Regular Run: Wednesday - Saturday, 8:00 p.m.; Sunday, 2:00 p.m. Tickets: $35 and up. Student tickets start at $20.
