At the risk of alienating all of my friends south of the Mason-Dixon Line (and quite a few up north, as well), I have a confession to make: I don’t love Robert Harling’s “Steel Magnolias.”
Maybe it’s just that I’ve seen it so many times that I practically have it committed to memory. But leave it Studio Tenn to breathe new life into this well-worn saga of Southern sisterhood, with thoughtful performances and design.
