GREATER TUNA to Return to Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre By Popular Demand
Due to popular demand, Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre has announced the return of the uproarious two-man comedy "Greater Tuna", slated for spring 2018.
Donald Jordan, CityRep's founding artistic director, and CityRep co-founder Jonathan Beck Reed have announced that they will reprise their roles in the multiple character-two-man comedy.
Greater Tuna is the first in a series of four comedic plays (followed by A Tuna Christmas; Red, White and Tuna; and Tuna Does Vegas), each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the "third-smallest" town in the state. The plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes and a withering satire of them. Noteworthy is that two actors (usually men) play the entire cast of more than 20 eccentric characters of both genders and various ages.
Greater Tuna debuted in Austin, Texas in 1981 and had its off-Broadway premiere in 1982. St. Vincent Summer Theatre produced the play in 2000.
"Greater Tuna," will replace CityRep's previously announced production of "Tick, Tick ... Boom!", which has been postponed for the time being. Steve Emerson will direct "Greater Tuna."
"Greater Tuna" will run for four-weeks, from March 15 through April 8 in the Freede Little Theatre at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N Walker. Tickets for "Greater Tuna" are $8 for students, teachers and Military Personnel (with ID), $25 (groups of eight or more), $35 (matinees) and $40 (evening performances) and may be purchased by calling the Civic Center Box Office at 297-2264 or online at www.cityrep.com.
