Within the walls of Truvy's beauty shop, set in the deep Bayou of Louisiana, six strong women's lives increasingly hinge on the existence of one another. Together, they absorb the passing seasons, just like the weathered wooden structure of the salon "home" that they share. What if, like these six women, we didn't have to go it alone? What if the comfort we've been searching for has always been there, right in our own backyard? At turns both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, the L.A. Theatre Works production of Steel Magnolias reveals the strength of the human condition and our shared need for companionship. The play has had multiple New York runs and performances staged around the globe, and is also a popular film starring Sally Fields, Dolly Parton, and Julia Roberts.
