In a tiny, family-run factory, fabric flies and tempers flare when Ana, fresh out of high school, rebels against the status quo with dreams of becoming a writer. But deportation and the pressure to not abandon her heritage become a heated debate. These incredibly strong women gossip about food and sex and love…and size, while rewriting Corporate America's definition of beauty. A coming of age comedy, set in East LA, written, directed and designed by an all-women team.

Production work is first-rate from the all-women cast and crew, particularly Tanya Orellana's elaborately detailed clothing factory and Jessica Champagne-Hansen's gorgeous evening dresses. Full of heart and soul, Real Women Have Curves combines a moving story and contemporary issues into an entertaining, upbeat evening of theatre.

All the actors are real and wonderful in their roles, and we get a vivid sense of how emotional and powerless they feel at times. ...Garry Marshall Theatre has a winner in this first play of their second season. Come and enjoy. It is fun, poignant, heartwarming, and a MUST see. Enjoy!!!!!!!!

Real women not only have curves, they join forces to bring audiences a female-fueled revival of Josefina López's Real Women Have Curves, a Garry Marshall Theatre crowd-pleaser if there ever was one.
