Tuna FantastickStar thespians Jaston Williams and Joe Sears have a hard time shedding the skirts of their Tuna plays. Greater Tuna and A Tuna Christmas, created with pal Ed Howard, are in such demand that the duo still can't retire the original (the next "farewell tour" plays the Paramount Theatre September 3-8) and they can play Christmas in most any season. Still, every so often, the actors manage to sneak into a Tuna-free play; they're doing one now: The Fantasticks, another "show that won't die" with local ties (creators Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt are UT alums). But to see it you have to go to Fort Worth. It runs at Casa Mañana there through September 1, with no plans to stage the show in Austin at present. Sigh. See "Art of the State" for more info.
