This is going to be a powerful event. So much talent. There’s the 160 member Collegiate Chorale with members from eighty-year-olds to high school students. There’s the 62 member American Symphony Orchestra. There’s the script by Michael Korie based on John Steinbeck’s book and the music by Ricky Ian Gordon. There’s Nathan Gunn playing Tom Joad and Victoria Clark as Ma Joad and Christine Ebersole as Mae the waitress. All so powerful and (alas) timely. I feel honored to be part of it. I went to lunch today with Christine Ebersole and Michael Korie and they are both so utterly fascinating and profound. I’m sick and on antibiotics but I know I’ll feel better tomorrow and, even if I don’t, I am so glad I agreed to be in this. Dad would be happy. There’ll be more photos tomorrow. I have lots of friends coming.
See you then
