Check It. 'Real Women Have Curves.'

Last week, the play-based-on-a-movie Real Women Have Curves debuted at the Long Beach Playhouse's stage. Based on the 2002 movie featuring Ugly Betty star America Ferrera, this play is about a young woman working in an East LA factory, filled with full-figured women sewing clothes together, forming bonds and going beyond body type.

Touching upon such perennial themes as immigration, identity, and gender this movie lends itself well to a play adaptation.

Real Women Have Curves is $22 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday matinee.

The Long Beach Playhouse is located at 5021 E. Anaheim St. in Long Beach.
