Post Nettie's Spa
What role does Nettie's Spa play in CAROUSEL? And I'm assuming that it's more of a beauty parlor rather than the way we think of 'spa' today.

Like I said in my original post, I was assuming that "Spa" was not being used in the modern sense. As to where I got it from, I saw a picture from the original 1943 production of Carrie singing the Act I Reprise of "Mr. Snow" in front of a building with a sign that says "Nettie's Spa".

They do refer to it as "Nettie's Spa" in the script...
