It’s the summer of 1987 in Los Angeles’ Boyle Heights, and Ana wants to blaze her own path. The first-generation child of Mexican immigrants, Ana is torn between a future at her family’s garment business and her dreams of college in New York. If she breaks from her parents’ vision for her life, can she still honor the sacrifices that have allowed her to dream? Based on the play by Josefina López that inspired the hit film by Josefina López and George LaVoo, this new musical tells an uplifting story for anyone who has experienced the unexpected curves of life.
Directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Arrabal, Ain’t Too Proud, Jersey Boys), Real Women Have Curves features a book by award-winning playwright Lisa Loomer (Roe; The Waiting Room; Girl, Interrupted) with an original score by Grammy-winning recording artist Joy Huerta (from world-renowned Mexican pop duo Jesse and Joy) and Fred Ebb Award winner Benjamin Velez (Kiss My Aztec).
