I've seen the other "Tunas" and this was a pale comparison. There was not as much of the costume changes as in the past and several times both actors were off the stage at the same time. The second act really didn't work for me. They introduced...continued

The guys are as great as ever, and it was good to see them. But this script doesn't have quite the sparkle of Greater Tuna and Tuna Christmas. So good to see the old favorites, especially DeeDee Sanvely. It was well worth the trip and the discount...continued

Actually this is the fourth show in the Tuna, Texas, series. (The original GREATER TUNA, was followed by A TUNA CHRISTMAS, and RED, WHITE AND TUNA, and now TUNA DOES VEGAS.)

Description

Tuna Does Vegas, the hilarious new installment from the legendary “Greater Tuna” creative team, hits the road with a 21-city National tour starting March 25th at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Texas. Starring the incomparable duo Joe Sears and Jaston Williams, Tuna Does Vegas re-unites the lovable and eccentric characters from the ‘third smallest town in Texas’ as they take a rambling romp in Sin City. The hilarity begins when oddball-conservative radio host Arles Struvie announces on air that he and his wife Bertha Bumiller are heading to Vegas to renew their wedding vows…but everyone in Tuna, Texas goes along for the ride! Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard, Tuna Does Vegas will feature the favorite characters from the award-winning Greater Tuna productions with some new characters too! ——all staged under the directorial hand of Mr. Howard.

_

Tuna Does Vegas _balances as both an affectionate comment on small-town life and attitudes as well a hilarious satire of the same. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only Mr. Sears and Mr. Williams, making this send-up on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, as well as Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators and more!

Tuna Does Vegas features scenery designed by Christopher McCollum, costumes designed by Linda Fisher, lighting designed by David Nancarrow and sound designed by Ken Huncovsky.

About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre

The Warner's special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.

The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood's Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
