INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
Synetic Theater generally follows Metro closings in inclement weather as to whether we cancel a performance or not. Should Metro close either all stations or just the above ground stations, Synetic will cancel a performance. Ticketholders for the cancelled performances will be notified by email or phone call, as soon as the decision is made. Updates can also be found on Synetic Theater’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. We encourage you to check Synetic website for the most up-to-date cancellation information.
