Perfroming Arts: Ben Cunis’ Favorite Theaters

by Editorial

We asked the  Synetic Theater actor (and The Young and The Guest List nominee) Ben Cunis where some of his favorite theaters were. He obliged us with these three theatrical gems.

H STREET PLAYHOUSE Consistently good work is done here by little-known, but highly talented companies, including Scena Theatre and Theater Alliance.

FORUM THEATRE “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” was the stuff of D.C.-theater-scene legend. I’m looking forward to seeing “One Flea Spare” and “Bobrauschenbergamerica” at Round House’s Silver Spring location, directed, respectively, by Alexander Strain and Derek Goldman, two seriously talented artists.

SYNETIC THEATER I would be horribly remiss if I left out my own company! We take classic stories and reinvent them, fusing drama, dance, acrobatics, mime, combat and original music. It always leaves me sore, which, to me, is a very good sign! Check out our production of “King Lear” at the Lansburgh Theater.  March 24 to April 24.
