February 20, 2008 > Steel Magnolias
Steel Magnolias is a skillfully crafted, lovingly evoked play of eccentricity in a small Southern town. The action is set in Truvy's Beauty Salon in Chiquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Filled with hilarious repartee, and not a few acerbic verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when Shelby, a diabetic, risks pregnancy and endangers her life. The sudden realization of their own mortality affects them all, and draws on their underlying strength and love.
