When Arena comes home, Synetic takes over Crystal City

Synetic performing at a CCBID event last year

Well, not all of Crystal City. Though that would be cool – imagine walking down a street where everyone is dressed cool, well-lit, and dancing to intense music.

No, they’ll be taking over the space that Arena was using while the Mead Center was being built in their proper home in SW. When they move back home this Fall it’ll become Synetic Theater’s full-time location.

That’s great news for them, the Crystal City business improvement district who wants to keep things popping in that area, and for all the rest of us. Jenn told us about how great their Anthony and Cleopatra was. We can also take something from the fact that the presenter at the Helen Hayes last night was shocked – gasped after opening the envelope, actually – that, for a change, someone other than Synetic’s Irina Tsikurishvili took home the choreography award.

Congrats, Synetic. From everything I hear it’s well-deserved and I look forward to finding out for myself soon – Metamorphosis opens in 3 days.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.


One thought on “When Arena comes home, Synetic takes over Crystal City

  1. As a patron, I suggest you see Othello. The Kennedy Center provides a beautiful space in the Family Theater and the company really paints the stage. Derek Goldman is directing Metamorphosis. It is bound to be a good show, but no show is as wonderful as when directed by the master-mind, Paata Tsikurishvili!
