The Stages Rep presents the Southern classic STEEL MAGNOLIAS, opening this week, and the regional premiere of LIFE COULD BE A DREAM continues through September 2.

By Robert Harling
Stages produces Robert Harling’s touching story based on the author’s true life experience of losing his sister. Houston’s most beloved actresses take the stage for a summer production of the enormously popular play, first produced Off-Broadway in 1987, adapted to the iconic film in 1989, and produced on Broadway in 2005.

Written in 1987, this bittersweet American classic was adapted to the iconic film in 1989. Now Stages revisits these irresistible, unforgettable Southern women in a once-in-a-lifetime event showcasing a dream ensemble of Houston performers including Sally Edmundson, Susan Koozin and Holland Vavra Peters.
