Eisemann Center Presents Jaston Williams In CLEAR TO PARTLY CRAZY
Eisemann Center Presents the Theatre & Comedy production of Jaston Williams' hilarious new comedy Clear to Partly Crazy for three performances running October 19-20, 2018 at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson. The Tuna series (Greater Tuna, A Tuna Christmas, Red, White and Tuna and Tuna Does Vegas) - performed for over two decades - earned Williams a reputation as a gifted story-teller.
Announcing the Dallas premiere of Jaston Williams in his one man show Clear to Partly Crazy, where he holds forth on subjects all Texans understand: cheerleading, tornadoes and certifiably insane blood relatives. Travel with him from grandstands, to storm cellars to the occasional mental institution, laughing all the way.
Jaston Williams is co-author, co-star and producer of Tuna Does Vegas and the Tuna Trilogy. His performances have played on and off Broadway at the Kennedy Center, the Edinburgh International Arts Festival, the Spoleto Festival U.S.A. and all over America. Jaston received the L.A.

He performed in The Fantasticks and directed the musical Bad Girls Upset by The Truth. Jaston received the Texas Governor's Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts by a Native Texan and has performed at the White House on three occasions. He has appeared at the State Theatre in Eugene Ionesco's The Chairs and at Zachary Scott Theatre in Jay Preston Allen's Tru, for which he received the Austin Critics Table Award for Best Actor in a drama. He most recently appeared at Zachary Scott Theatre in The Laramie Project. He work-shopped his autobiographical one-man show I'm Not Lying to critical acclaim at various venues.
