March 15, 2009 - The Grapes of Wrath at ZACH
     As soon as we get through all the madness that is SXSW, I’ll sit down to write a proper review of Zachary Scott Theatre’s new production of The Grapes of Wrath.  So in the
Grapes8.tif
meantime, suffice to say - go see this show!
    The production values are amazing, and the cast is stellar - especially Austin actor extraordinaire Marc Pouhe as the fallen preacher Jim Casy.  Dave Steakley has created another Austin theatre masterpiece, weaving music director Allen Robertson’s Depression era tunes through the action.  And the transformation of the intimate Kelberg Stage into an organic dustbowl is stunning, complete with a torrential rainstorm in
 
Act II.
    So trust me - you don’t want to miss this production.  The show runs through May 10th, so get your tickets now.
