We are proud to present Steel Magnolias as our closing Mainstage production during our 50th Anniversary Season.
A first play which met with immediate critical and popular acceptance in its premier production by New York’s WPA Theatre. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching — and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.
“Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue… The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving.” – NY Daily News
Scheduled performance dates:
April 26-28 and May 3-5, 2019
