Short review: Steel Magnolias

Rated 5.0

Sacramento Theatre Company’s production of Steel Magnolias is like comfort food with top-notch ingredients. The staging is in STC’s smaller venue, a wise choice since it provides an intimacy that’s needed. There’s nothing groundbreaking in the play, rather it’s the simple stories of women who have found friendship and family in each other. Thu 7pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm, Sun 2pm & 7pm, Wed 7pm. Through 12/9; $15-$38; Sacramento Theatre Company, Pollock Stage, 1419 H St., (916) 443-6722,
