"What a finely constructed piece of theater it is, as resilient, as funny, as moving and as bracing as its marvelous title characters”
-- The New York Daily News
Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done, is Louisiana’s go-to place for a beauty fix with a hearty side of gossip. With her overeager, new assistant, Annelle - currently experiencing problems in her marriage - the two ladies dispense shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeons including moody Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee who has a raging sweet tooth, and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby - the prettiest girl in town - is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Steel Magnolias is a story of hilarious repartee, acerbic yet humorously revealing verbal collisions, and the sudden realization of mortality within an all too perfect beauty salon. Strength and love make this play, and its characters, truly touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in both good times and bad.
(l-r). Annette Brown as Ouiser, Ann Fabre as Clairee, Tricia Walck Weinand as M'Lynn, Trinity Adams as Shelby, Marina AlMahayri as Annelle and Elizabeth Magee as Truvy
