I too, was concerned, but after searching around and asking a licensed dietitian friend in the area, the grass itself does not contain any gluten, only the kernel, and in juicing wheatgrass you only juice the grass, so yay!

  15. All are required to attend strike. In the event the show is selling extremely well, Sunday 2/25 will be used to add a matinee and extend the run. Currently, there’s only a small chance we will extend. Because of weather, sales may be down - and Thursday has not sold well at all. A decision will be made by Friday morning 2/23 (if not before).
