Theatre Company Moves

By Rebecca Sheir

Arlington, Virginia is trading one theater company for another.

An experimental-movement group is moving to a space in Crystal City now in use by Arena Stage.

The Synetic Theater Company plans to migrate from Rosslyn, Virginia, to 1800 South Bell Street in Crystal City this September.

The space has been the temporary home of Arena Stage, which is building a new, $125 million theater complex in Southwest D.C.

The deal stems from a collaboration between the property owner and the Crystal City Business Improvement District, which has been seeking a replacement for Arena.

Crystal City's nightlife has received an economic boost since Arena took residence in December 2007. Meanwhile, Synetic, which nabbed multiple honors at this week's Helen Hayes Awards, has been outgrowing its home in the Rosslyn Spectrum.

No new tenant has been announced for the Spectrum.
