Opens Friday, May 31
When two actors portray all the roles in a play about the residents of a small west Texas town, it's worth a look if just to see them transform from a pair of good ol’ boys in overalls into the lipstick-caked waitresses in knee highs at the Tastee Kreme Diner. Oklahoma City’s City Rep Theatre Company opens the hysterical comedy Greater Tuna, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 31, at Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall’s Freede Little Theatre, 201 N. Walker Ave. Written by (and often performed by) Jason Williams and Bartlesville’s Joe Sears along with Ed Howard, Greater Tuna became an instant hit when it debuted in the early 1980s. Vera Carp, the Bumillers and Didi Snavely have lived on in three more tales of Tuna – A Tuna Christmas; Red, White and Tuna; and Tuna Does Vegas. This presentation stars Donald Jordan and Jonathan Beck Reed taking the reins of this theatric gem. Show runs through June 16, and tickets are $8-$35. Get them online at www.myticketoffice.com.
