Margaretville — “Steel Magnolias” by Robert Harling will have its first performance on Friday, July 24, at 7:30 p.m. at The Open Eye Theater in Margaretville.
Directed by David J. Turan, this heart wrenching comedy/drama is set in a beauty shop in a small Louisiana town in the 1980s. The shop is owned and operated by the very hip Truvy (Jo Boring). She is assisted by seemingly shy and exceedingly religious Annelle (Lizz Browne).
