“I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.” Steel Magnolias brings an entire evening of wonderful to Merchant Hall! L.A. Theatre Works has reimagined this timeless story about the enduring bonds of friendship in a new, radio-style production featuring a diverse cast of six extraordinary women. Return with the cast to Truvy’s beauty shop in the Bayou of Louisiana. The vibrant women gather in this bastion of camaraderie to preen for special occasions, and celebrate and support one another, while enduring the ups and downs of life. Both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, this production exposes the strength of the human condition and our shared need for companionship. This company is known for radio-style drama presentations that include minimal sets and costumes, and employs sound effects made the “old-fashioned way.” L.A. Theatre Works is hailed as “original, exciting, and highly theatrical.” (American Theatre Magazine)
