Overview

March 29 - 30, 2017

GREATER TUNA is a hilarious and irreverent comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. All new reimagined and directed by co-creator Jaston Williams, the eclectic band of Tuna citizens – men, women, children, and animals alike – are portrayed by ONLY 3 performers, making this satire on life in rural America both crazy and delightful.  Called “a good ol’ down-home laugh-out-loud fest,” by DC Metro Theater Arts, GREATER TUNA has enjoyed worldwide success, including long-running engagements both on and Off-Broadway, at the White House in Washington, D.C., on Late Night with David Letterman, and as an HBO special. 3 Actors, 21 Characters, 20 million laughs.

Special rates available for groups of 10+
