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.
