The bittersweet Southern comedy Steel Magnolias takes place in Truvy Jones' beauty salon, where three generations of outspoken Southern women regularly gather to laugh, cry and celebrate the events of their lives. But their world is rocked by a sudden and devastating tragedy that puts the ladies' inner strength and love for one another to the ultimate test. Based on the playwright's own upbringing, this touching and funny play was adapted into a popular film starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine and Julia Roberts. Learn More

The play was absolutely dreadful in all respects. It felt like a high school performance, and the text was terrible, with a love triangle that was really not believable and artificial dialogues with interspersed words in Spanish like cafecito or coño as to signal identity -both ethnic and sexual (very nineties but by now passe) . the attempt at magical realism with the reference to a mythical island in the Caribbean was a caricature, not to mention the allusions to brujeria and brujeros (hasta cuando please?). It was really terrible. The worst play i have seen, i think, in my entire life. And having the audience in stage did not work either, you have the actors shouting on your face. Lastly, please, change the folding plastic chairs tor some decent seating. they were too small for the generally "chunky" Miami audience, and super uncomfortable.
About the Ticket Supplier: New Theatre
New Theatre is a multi-cultural theatre producing a season of Nouveau Classic works, blending classics and new works, which speak to and about a diverse contemporary audience by stimulating, provoking, challenging, and entertaining since 1986.
Entering our 25th Anniversary Season, our theatre has flourished under the energetic Artistic Direction of Ricky J. Martinez and Managing Director, Eileen Suarez refining its focus on works which speak of social/religious/humanistic interests, relevant issues of discrimination based on race, gender and sexual orientation, the immigrant’s plight, the role of youth in our community, and for stories from the heart and for the soul which celebrate the mosaic that makes up our South Florida community.
We embrace the voices of early and mid-career playwrights. Many talented artists would not have a forum for their work without our unflagging commitment to “new voices-new work.” We have commissioned and/or produced over fifty world premieres including Nilo Cruz’s 2003 Pulitzer Prize and Steinberg award-winning play Anna in the Tropics, Steinberg and Osborn award nominated Just A Kiss by Catherine Bush, recently published works such as Clarence Darrow’s Last Trial by Shirley Lauro, Elaine Romero’s Barrio Hollywood, and David Caudle’s Sunken Living Room.
Our theatre has been home to several World Premieres of local professional playwrights Michael McKeever, Susan Westfall, Dr. Richard Janaro, Alfred Allan Lewis, Lauren Feldman, and David Caudle which later exhibit nationally and internationally. For the past twenty years, New Theatre has housed, in its modest hundred-seat theatre, over fifty world premieres, and as many Florida premieres.
Our artists have received many honors and awards, including the Key to the City of Coral Gables, Carbonell awards and nominations from the South Florida Theater Critics Association, Best of Miami awards in Miami New Times and SunPost, Best of the Year listings in The Miami Herald and The Sun Sentinel, South Florida Theatre League Silver Palm Awards and 2008 South Florida Theatre Festival Audience Favorite for Miami-Dade County and others to boot!
