I agree with the previous review on the actors flubbing lines, but they bounced back beautifully for the most part.

I saw this show last night on closing weekend! What an amazing and detailed set. The actresses were amazing! This was a great show and one that made a great play to see with my mom. Friendly employees. This theater is small and cute. Recommend...continued

Most cast and crew recent BFA graduates, great effort, these kids really want to learn their craft and Chicago's small theaters are the place to do it. Support this theater! Enjoyed the show, will be back for more.

Description

The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play does move towards tragedy. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength – and love – which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
