Steel Magnolias, a funny, heartbreaking story of female empowerment and resilience by Robert Harling, is directed by Brian Kite and features a company of six diverse women including Shannon Holt, Elisa Bocanegra, Monica McSwain, Inger Tudor, Cerris Morgan-Moyer and Patti Yasutake.
Sometimes laughter is a matter of life and death. Steel Magnolias is the bittersweet story of six women in a small Louisiana town who gather under the dryers at Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes, and beauty secrets. When tragedy strikes, they face it with sass and strength, supporting each other through thick and thin and forging a life-long bond. At turns both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Steel Magnolias reveals the strength of the human condition and our shared need for companionship.
