About the Program

From our Friends at The Paramount Theatre (Austin Theatre Alliance) in Austin –

Austin favorite Jaston Williams of Greater Tuna fame is back with a new darkly funny solo performance! When mysterious lights appeared over Lubbock, Texas in 1951, people wondered aloud whether they were part of some government plot, an invasion by the Russians or just seeing space aliens out to abduct Francine Whitharrel’s Persian cat. In I Saw the Lights, you will hear from the preacher with too much sense of humor, the hippie whose girlfriend longs to become a Comanche, a socialite from Connecticut who holds grudges against trees, and the cowboy with a chronic fear of water. All in all, nine variant souls are drawn together by the inexplicable and are forever bonded through their humanity and humor.

Take a sneek peek at this pre-show conversation between playwright and performer Jaston Williams and The Grand’s Executive Director Maureen M. Patton.  It’s sure to have you giggling before the show starts!

Playwright and performer Jaston Williams is best known as the co-author and co-actor of the hilarious “Greater Tuna” quartet of plays, each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the “third-smallest” town in the state. But he’s been a part of many celebrated stage presentations throughout his career. Williams’ performances have played on and off Broadway, throughout the U.S., and in all corners of Texas. He received the national Marquee Award, a lifetime achievement award from the League of Historic American Theatres. And among other honors, he’s also the recipient of the Texas Governor’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts and the 2013 Texas Medal of the Arts award.
