La Mirada~Wow!  From the moment I walked in to the theatre I knew I was in for a treat.   The set on stage was breathtakingly beautiful.   I felt like I was actually in a beauty salon, the only thing missing was the strong smell of hair solutions.

I can only be talking about the production of Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling and directed by Brian Kite.  Presented by La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and McCoy Rigby Emtertainment in association with The Welks Resorts Theatre, it runs through October 18th.

I tip my hat to the actresses for allowing me to feel the very emotions that they performed on stage.  Funny, sincere, and completely enjoyable.  The likeness these actresses portrayed in comparison to those of the movie were right on. 

I was able to picture in my mind the 6 different lives of these women. How they live, where they live, what their spouses were like. What lifestyles they each lived and what their spiritual choices were. I truly enjoyed getting to know them. The underlying strength and love, along with the respect that they shared for one another, was envious.

I strongly recommend that you grab your sister, your mother, your best friends, and your neighbor and head on over to the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts to enjoy this high-flying performance.

Thank you to all those involved, you all did a great job.
