To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Grapes of Wrath, Sarasota's Asolo Repertory Theatre will be featured at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., on a panel April 24 called "Steinbeck on Stage." The panel at the Hirshhorn Museum in the Ring Auditorium will include Asolo's producing artistic director Michael Donald Edwards and Tony Award-winning Grapes of Wrath adapter and Sarasota resident Frank Galati. Asolo Rep actors will perform select scenes from The Grapes of Wrath, now playing at Asolo. You can still catch a performance of the play at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday at Asolo, 5555 N Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
