Greater Tuna is an irreverently hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. All of the town’s eclectic residents are portrayed by only three performers in this production, 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, the show has enjoyed worldwide success, including long-running engagements both on and Off-Broadway and on HBO. Each performance will be followed by a Q&A with Director Jaston Williams that’s bound to be as entertaining as the show!
