ARTS PICK: Steel Magnolias

Care salon: The six women in the classic tearjerker Steel Magnolias dish out tough love and compassion at Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana. Based on the true story of creator Robert Harling’s sister, the play is a lesson in resilience, and a testament to the power of female friendships. This production stars Katy Sullivan, an award-winning actress who was among the first bilateral amputees to compete in the Paralympics in ambulatory track when she ran in the London 2012 games and set a new American record.

Through 8/4. $15-20, times vary. Heritage Theatre Festival, Culbreth Theater, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
