Gossip and witty Southern banter come forth like the spray from a new can of Aqua Net in Robert Harling’s beautiful and heartfelt comedy. The charming and never-without-an-opinion hairdresser, Truvy, does hair for the classiest and sassiest of northwest Louisiana. As they pass time in Truvy’s chair, at the shampoo basin, and under the hair dryer, these strong, resilient women celebrate one another’s joys and forge bonds that overcome life’s disappointments. Popularized by the 1989 film by the same name, Steel Magnolias offers inspiration from a simpler time while reminding us that the best things in life are the company of faithful friends, a good laugh, and a trip to the beauty shop.
“Most perceptive…an evening of sweet sympathies and small-town chatter.”
