Grapes of Wrath

Ricky Ian Gordon's all-star cast of his opera "Grapes of Wrath" received plenty of press coverage. Fortunately for followers of this site, there were also plenty of pictures, because the cast included two of the hottest barihunks in the world today: Nathan Gunn and Matthew Worth.

  1. Hi, I was lucky enough to attend this with a seat in the 4th row center. The "barihunks" and the rest of the cast were great. It was very moving. Thanks for posting the links to the reviews.
