The Grapes of Wrath: The University of Miami's Jerry Herman Ring Theater (1380 Miller Dr., Coral Gables) presents Frank Galati's 1990 Tony Award-winning adaption of the John Steinbeck classic about the Great Depression. For those of you who never read the book or saw John Ford's legendary film version (for shame!), the story follows a family of impoverished migratory farm workers as they struggle to make their way to California. Performances run tonight through October 26, and October 29 through November 2 at 8:00, with 2:00 matinees on October 26 and November 2. Tickets cost $12 and $15. Call 284-3355. (GC)

Dan Quayle: Nova Southeastern University launches its 1996-97 series of Breakfast Forums with former vice president Dan Quayle. Quayle is considered to have been one of the most active VPs in history, having visited 47 nations and chaired several committees. He now serves on a number of corporate boards and political action committees and recently published his second book, The American Family: Discovering Values That Make Us Strong. Not bad for a guy who don't spell so good and who was depicted in Doonesbury as a feather. The breakfast takes place today at 7:30 a.m. at the Sheraton Design Center (1825 Griffin Rd., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets cost $50. Call 954-475-7699 to reserve a seat. (
