Steel Magnolias Tickets - The Experience
The original stage production of the Steel Magnolias opened in 1987 in New York’s WPA Theatre, and is based on the author Robert Harling’s experience with the death of his younger sister, who is a diabetic. What started out as a therapeutic way of expressing Harling’s feelings turned into a full-length play, which has also been made into a comedy-drama movie in 1989 with an all-star cast. Those who have Steel Magnolias tickets may wonder what the title is all about; as the play progresses, it will become clear that the term “steel magnolias” is used to describe how women can be tough as steel when faced with challenges, but are still fragile as flowers (magnolias) deep inside.
