It’s always a beautiful experience being part of a production, especially if it’s a production of the icon of all Southern comedies “Steel Magnolias.” In my wildest dreams, I never imagined I would ever get an opportunity to play Shelby Latcherie.
With any role, it’s an emotional rollercoaster from scene to scene, but in Shelby’s case the twists and turns keep on coming.
“Steel Magnolias” has been a classic story for decades and made a household name after the 1989 movie starring Dolly Parton, Sally Fields, Julia Roberts, and so on. When one thinks of Southern, “Steel Magnolias” is one of the first thoughts that come to mind. The warm and well-developed characters keep this story thriving from generation to generation.
