At Truvy’s beauty salon you can always get the best hair ‘do — and the best gossip!
A tight-knit group of Louisiana women gather regularly to bond, dish and offer advice on everything from motherhood and marriage to tragedy and loss. Beloved characters like the wise-cracking Truvy and her eager new assistant Annelle, curmudgeonly Ouiser, millionaire Miss Clairee, and local social leader M’lynn and her sweet-natured daughter Shelby all find their lives and relationships tested. But in the face of impossible decisions, their bonds with one another only strengthen. Written with heartwarming dialogue and snappy repartee, Steel Magnolias revels in the power and grace of female friendship.

"Tugs at the heart while making us laugh.” — Chicago Critic
“A Southern recipe, served up with love.” — Los Angeles Times
“Many of the zingers curl hair more effectively than Truvy and Annelle can with their never-idle hands.” — Theatermania
