Tuna Does Vegas

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2008-11-05

The eccentric characters from the third-smallest town in Texas make their way back to the Majestic stage for the newest installment from the “Greater Tuna” creative team, Tuna Does Vegas. Starring the unrivaled duo of Jaston Williams and Joe Sears, the pair changes scenery for a romp in Sin City this go-round. Oddball-conservative radio host Arles Struvie announces on air that he and his wife are heading to Vegas to renew their wedding vows. Why not invite the whole town along for the ride? In classic Tuna tradition, Williams and Sears alone portray the eclectic cast, so favorites return and a few additions — including Elvis impersonators and Vegas showgirls — join the bill. See how rural Americans handle the decadent melee — Tuna, Texas, is about to realize that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. $10.75-55.75, 8pm Tuesday-Saturday, 2pm matinee Saturday & Sunday, 7:30pm Sun, through November 16, Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., majesticempire.com.
