Legacy Theater along with Dramatists Play Service is excited to open our 2017 Season of Joy with the classic STEEL MAGNOLIAS by Robert Harling. 2017 is our Season of Joy and many confuse joy and happiness. While happiness is an emotion that is not temporary, Joy is the hope and contentment in all situations - even the rough ones. Steel Magnolias epitomizes JOY. It has been called "The funniest show to make you cry.", and promises to be an amazing production. If you loved the movie, you will enjoy the live play even more.
Set in a small town in Louisiana ‐‐ in the time of really big hair ‐‐ six women gather in Truvy's beauty shop for gossip, friendship, and support. These women are true steel magnolias: southern belles who are flowery on the outside, but tough as steel inside. The play is alternately hilarious and touching as it moves from the excitement of Shelby’s wedding to sadness and loss, all the while bringing tons of laughter and joy.
