If it works on stage, will it work on screen? This month we're discussing plays adapted into romcom films. To kick it off, Jonelle and Eliza sit down with noted theatre person and mom Esther Cohen to discuss Steel Magnolias (1989) for Mother's Day, including how the screenplay successfully remodeled the play for film; how our conversations around disability have changed in the last 30 years; and how much they adore the late Olympia Dukakis
