The Joads Play Carnegie Hall

Posted at 6:46 PM on October 5, 2009 by Gillian Martin

The Joad family gave up everything to get to California, and now they'll see New York, too.

The Minnesota Opera produced the world premiere of The Grapes of Wrath by Ricky Ian Gordon and Michael Korie back in 2007.

Now a concert version of the work (no costumes, no sets) will play Carnegie Hall next spring. See the big-name cast list here.
