by David Green - Feb 6, 2019

The McCallum Theatre presents L.A. Theatre Works' production of Steel Magnolias on Monday, February 25, at 7:00pm. Strong as steel and delicate as magnolias. The six women of Chinquapin, Louisiana, face life's ups and downs together in this beloved comedy/drama. Truvy's home beauty parlor is their gathering place, where they gossip, needle, and jab each other through the best of times and comfort and repair one another through the worst. Based on the hit Off-Broadway show that became a star-studded motion picture in 1989, this is a funny, poignant tale of female friendship and the unbreakable mother-daughter bond. (more...)

STEEL MAGNOLIAS Comes to Popejoy HallSTEEL MAGNOLIAS Comes to Popejoy Hall
by BWW News Desk - Oct 2, 2018

Based on a true story, Steel Magnolias features six strong, resilient women who bond over love, laughter, and loss. The show was written as a tribute to playwright Robert Harling's sister who passed away due to diabetes complications. The actors respond to events featuring life challenges over three years. Steel Magnolias takes the stage during their 29th year of touring at Popejoy Hall on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 3 p.m. Directed by Brian Kite, the theatrical and film classic is set against the backdrop of the Louisiana Bayou in the 1980s. The performance begins when a group of women meets unexpectedly at Truvy's in-home beauty salon on the day of the Eatenton Wedding. Shelby, the bride, is in dire need of an up-do from Truvy. Although Shelby was cautioned against having children because she has Type 1 diabetes, she is determined to experience motherhood. Following Shelby's decision to have a child, her friends and family stand beside her to support her and her baby on the way. Steel Magnolias opened Off-Broadway in 1987 prior to the launch of a U.S. national tour in 1989. Since then, the show has performed worldwide in the U.K., Ireland, Japan, Poland, and Sweden. The cast includes Inger Tudor (Goliath and The Social Network), Cerris Morgan-Moyer (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Monica McSwain (Red Eye), Patti Yasutake (Star Trek and Grey's Anatomy), Shannon Holt (Judgment at Nuremberg), and Elisa Bocanegra (Gilmore Girls and Undecided). Steel Magnolias is an L.A. Theatre Works production. L.A. Theatre Works was found in 1974 and began audio recording in the 1990s instead of producing conventional theatrical presentations. The company is the leading producer of audio theatre in the United States. L.A. Theatre Works produces modern masterpieces, world classics, original and contemporary works with an emphasis in cultural, historical, and social issues. (more...)
