Both of these men were remarkable in their ability to play multiple roles. I especially enjoyed the actor who played all of the female parts. He was a hoot. As far as the story line, it seemed a bit disjointed and some of the lines and dialogue could have been better. The writing/script did not seem top notch. Also, it was difficult at times to imagine things as there was very minimal use of real props. You have to be in the mindset to really pay attention to the dialogue and to create your own visuals. This can be a fun or daunting task depending on the mood you are in. As always, I love this intimate small theater and the staff is consistently wonderful.

Welcome to the “third smallest town in Texas”, where the Lions Club is viewed as suspiciously liberal and Roots is pulled from the library because “it only shows one side of the slavery issue.” Yet despite Tuna’s quirky small-town politics, we see ourselves in its inhabitants’ all-too-human struggles, triumphs and foibles. Greater Tuna was performed at the White House for President George H.W. Bush (Sr.) and earned the SF Bay Area Critics Award and LA Dramalogue Award for playwright Jaston Williams. Rated PG-13 for sharp satire.
