A casting search has begun for the strong, funny and wise women who inhabit Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small town in 1980s Louisiana.
An off-Broadway hit in 1987, "Steel Magnolias" played 1,126 performances at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, following a short run at the WPA Theatre. Selected as one of The Best Plays of 1987-1988 by the prestigious theater yearbook of the same name, "Steel Magnolias" has since been performed in hundreds of productions around the world and was the basis of a star-studded 1989 film.
The new production of the play will be directed by Jason Moore, currently represented on Broadway with "Avenue Q."
