stm-web-largeThe funniest show ever that will make you cry. Set in Truvy’s beauty salon in a small town in Louisiana. All the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done while sharing the latest gossip and joys of friendship. The play is alternately hilarious and touching as it moves from the excitement of Shelby’s wedding to sadness as friends mourn her loss. The sudden realization of their mortality deeply affects the women, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. These women are true steel magnolias: Southern Belles who are flowery on the outside, but strong as steel on the inside.

Steel Magnolias is directed by Cheryl D. Loudd who says, “Robert Harling’s work takes the audience through a wide range of emotions right along with the characters–from laughter to tears and everything in between. At a time when our lives are so fast-paced, Steel Magnolias is a good reminder of the power of friendship, and that the support of our loved ones can see us through just about any type of challenge.”

Robert Harling was inspired to write his first play after his sister Susan died of complications from diabetes. Steel Magnolias premiered off-Broadway at the WPA Theater in 1987, then quickly transferred to the Lucille Lortel Theater and became an instant sensation, running for three years and spawning a hit movie.
