Steel Magnolias is a dramatic comedy that follows the lives and relationships of six women in a small-town Louisiana beauty shop. Originally a critically acclaimed play that was made into the famous movie, Harling's Steel Magnolias is at times hilarious and at times heart wrenching. The colorful intertwining relationships of these six friends paints a picture of friendship that is complete and awe-inspiring.
