Real Women Have Curves on Broadway Background

Barry and Fran Weissler, the well known producers of Chicago and Waitress, have developed a musical adaptation of the acclaimed and award-winning film Real Women Have Curves, that actually started out as a play, but just not on Broadway.

The show is directed by Sergio Trujillo who is best known for his work on Broadway's Ain't Too Proud. The Grammy Award-winning Mexican pop group Jesse & Joy developed the music and lyrics. Lisa Loomer wrote the script for the show.

The show was originally a play in 1987, then it was developed into a 2002 film and now finds it way back to Broadway.

This show is ground breaking as it will be the first Broadway musical with a Latino director, bookwriter, lyricist, and composer, making this an all-Latin affair.

What’s Real Women Have Curves Like?

The story of a full-figured Mexican-American teenager in East Los Angeles struggling to choose between living her own life and the one that her immigrant parents want her to live. The show touches on topics like immigration, racism, cancel culture, body positivity, and sexual and race equity.

Is Real Women Have Curves Good for Kids?

The subject matter is not suited for younger audience members and the show is intended to more mature audiences due to its sexual content.
