Much Ado About Nothing
Synetic Founding Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili will direct one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies Much Ado About Nothing. 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! The performance runs through March 22nd, and tickets and more info can be found here.

Don't miss a special opportunity to see this performance and support Synetic at the 'Much Ado About Synetic' Benefit featuring a champagne and dessert reception with the artists 
in the style of 1950s Las Vegas at the Crystal City Marriott
 immediately following a performance of Much Ado About Nothing at Synetic Theater. The benefit begins at 6:30 PM with hors d'oeuvres in the Synetic Theater lobby. 
Tickets can be purchased here.
