Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine’s ten best shows of 2001.

Steel Magnolias, which graced Broadway and the Silver Screen, is a timeless American classic. The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done.

This is a play not to be missed!
