Synetic revives Romeo and Juliet

Synetic Theater presents yet another revival of an award-winning production in the Silent Shakespeare Festival. Yes, that’s right, Shakespeare stripped of its words — in this case, the classic story of Romeo and Juliet, played by Alex Mills and Natalie Berk. Synetic’s production won its ensemble and director Paata Tsikurishvili Helen Hayes Awards in 2009. You have to see it to believe it. To Dec. 23. Synetic Theater — Crystal City, 1800 South Bell St., Arlington. Tickets are $45 to $55. Call 800-494-8497 or visit
