Fantastic play, and fairly well acted. A few line stumbles and blocking gaffes kept this from being a top-notch event, but it's still quite worth seeing.

If I could give this a 2.5 I would. Better to stick to the movie.

This was the best of the many good plays we've enjoyed at the Church Street Theater.

Description

_Steel Magnolias _

by Robert Harling

Directed by Mark A. Rhea

The quintessential story of friendship and trust, _Steel Magnolias _serves up a southern slice of life that’s as warm and comforting as sweet potato pie! In the world of Truvy’s local-homegrown beauty salon, six very different women come together to share laughter, secrets, fears and friendship. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, new beginnings to happy endings, they share each moment in their lives with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair.
