The Iconic Steel Magnolias, 25 Years Later…

What a star-studded gala this will be!  A dear friend, David Youse, has organized a staged reading to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Robert Harding’s Steel Magnolias.  BTW, I cannot believe it has been nearly 25 years since I fell in LOVE with Shirley McLaine’s Ouiser (the scene at the funeral is classic). The evening will not only celebrate this much-loved play but also raise funds and awareness for The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Hats off to David for geting together such a stellar cast, all under the direction of Judith Ivey. It happens at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica on September 9, 6PM. Click here for tickets and more information.
