Steel Magnolias is a comedy-drama about a young beautician, newly arrived in a small Louisiana town, who finds work at the local salon, where a group of women share a close bond of friendship, and welcome her into the fold. The title suggests the “female characters are as delicate as magnolias, but as tough as steel.” Their strengths will be sorely tried, their wit often stretched thin and their hearts broken, with the changing of the seasons and the falling of the Steel Magnolias.

A woman hiding in a convent helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she rediscovers her own. This feel good comedy smash is based on the 1992 comedy film of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg. Oscar and Tony-winning composer, Alan Menken, wanted to inspire his score off of 1970’s music, specifically disco and gospel. As a result, the setting was changed from the original movie (Reno & San Francisco in the 1990’s) to Philadelphia in the 1970’s.
