Complete casting has been announced for the upcoming Bucks County Playhouse production of Robert Harling's comedy Steel Magnolias, directed by four-time Oscar nominee Marsha Mason.

The cast will feature Clea Alsip (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike) as Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie, Lucy DeVito (Love, Loss and What I Wore) as Annelle Dupuy-Desoto, and Elaine Hendrix (FX's Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll) as Truvy Jones. They join the previously announced Patricia Richardson (Home Improvement), who stars M'Lynn, Susan Sullivan (ABC's Castle), who will play Clairee Belcher, and Jessica Walter (Arrested Development), who takes on the role of Ouiser Boudreaux.

The play is set at Truvy's Beauty Salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where "the hair is big and the gossip is juicy. While their coifs are perfected and daily lives debated, six distinctly different women forge a unique bond of sisterhood — one that even when put to the test, only grows stronger."

Steel Magnolias will begin previews at Bucks County Playhouse on May 27 in advance of a May 28 opening. It will run through June 18.
