The Taming of the Shrew


Synetic Theater returns with their latest installment of the wildly popular Silent Shakespeare series, "The Taming of the Shrew"! Playing March 31 – 22 at The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Lansburgh Theatre. After receiving 15 Helen Hayes Award nominations in 2012 for "King Lear", Synetic Theater returns to comedy. Synetic Co-Founder Irina Tsikurishvili will play the title character in one of the Bard’s best-known romantic comedies, while the Helen Hayes Award-winning ensemble brings its signature physicality and aesthetic to reinvent this remarkable, fiery war of the sexes. Set within a Hollywood-style modern context of fame and glamour, this unique adaptation places Kate and Bianca in a relatable world of people struggling to see past their egos to find real love.
