Just about everyone knows the story of STEEL MAGNOLIAS due to the highly successful 1989 movie adaptation which starred Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, and Daryl Hannah: Truvy Jones runs a successful beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies in the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment. Along with her anxious and eager assistant, Annelle, Truvy styles the hair of many of the women about town: wealthy widow and former first lady of Chinquapin, Clairee Belcher, local curmudgeon Ouiser Boudreaux (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”), intelligent and compassionate career woman M’Lynn, and her daughter Shelby, the prettiest girl in town.
