Steel Magnolias

Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling

The well loved play about a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters. —Dramatists Play Service

"Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue…The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving." —NY Daily News

"...a skillfully crafted, lovingly evoked picture of eccentricity in the small-town South…" —Drama-Logue

"...suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy." —NY Post
