The celebrated Southern classic of family and friendship, this is the story of a group of strong and beautiful women who cluster around Truvy’s Beauty Parlor in a small Louisiana parish.

Golden Magnolias

I just loved ACT1s take on Steel Magnolias! In the small setting at ACT, the story we all know and love is intimate and personal. Hats off to Director Jonathan Goff and his team for a presentation that is not completely traditional. Light, shadow, color, and texture are all used to punctuate the critical elements of the story in a very pleasing and subtle manner.

All 6 actresses in the show deserve credit for their wonderful performances. Their engagement is so natural that you feel like you could be another customer in Truvys Beauty Parlor, watching the events take place. Except you get to laugh (and cry) at those events and the emotions and moments that bind these women in friendship.

Congrats! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
