Theatre Americana presents “Steel Magnolias” at the Lineage Performing Arts Center in Pasadena. This six-person ensemble show brings a professional and touching rendition of author Jim Harling’s play about love, resilience and friendship. In their hearts, comes true respect for the characters they emulate.
Steel Magnolias is a stage play based on the author, Jim Harling's experience with his sister's death. The title suggests the "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel". Steel Magnolias features a six-person ensemble that bring a professional and touching rendition of author Jim Harling’s play about love, resilience and friendship. In their hearts, comes true respect for the characters they emulate. Tony Rago (Scott Sedita Acting Studios), directs this heartfelt piece with a new perspective and vision, while guiding the actresses to capture that vision. In return, the actresses bring the story of women who exemplify both traditional femininity and an uncommon fortitude. The actresses, Mary Ellen Gridley (Truvy), Marianne Davis-Rago (Shelby), Paula Montgomery, (Clairee), Sarah Hunter (Quiser), Donna Scarantino (M'Lynn) and Joanna Mercedes (Annelle), give witty and intelligent performances filled with humorous antidotes. When tragedy strikes, the friendships between these six women take on an even deeper meaning.
