(Sorry, typo earlier!)

Oh my goodness, have a marvelous time! Can't wait to hear about it -- and best wishes to our young important friend!

Did Korie change it from "Rose of Sharon," or was that a typo in the program?

Hi Sibyl, Rose of Sharon is from the book; on the screen, the subtitles were written phonetically.

I went to see it...thought that Victoria Clark as ma Joad was amazing. Loved christine Ebersole as Mae. I thought the young boy, Alex Schwartz, had a beautiful voice. I wish he had more lines.
