“Steel Magnolias” at First Avenue Playhouse

“Steel Magnolias”
by Robert Harling

Concerned with 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. "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...Robert Harling is a new voice in the theatre and the qualities of STEEL MAGNOLIAS suggest he may be an important one." --Drama-Logue. "...suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy." --NY Post.
