But what struck Florida audiences as hilarious and poignant in the 2000 production at the Caldwell Theatre has lost a bit of its power in this perfectly workmanlike and mildly affecting edition […]Read more ›
By Michelle F. Solomon, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, April 12, 2014 - The Wick Theatre has trotted out some sprawling musicals in its first season, so it couldn’t be demure when picking its first non-musical production. Producers chose Steel Magnolias, approaching it in the same broad way as their premiere season that featured such extravaganzas as White Christmas, Sound of Music and 42ndStreet.
