Westport The Depot Theatre will close its 2012 Summer Season with Josefina Lopez’s coming-of-age story, “Real Women Have Curves.”
Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., this heart-warming comedy celebrates five full-figured Mexican-American women racing against impossible deadlines to keep their tiny factory from going under.
“We’re proud to bring this touching and entertaining story to our stage,” said Managing Director, Y. Angel Wuellner. “You may find yourself laughing until you cry at the same time that you are moved by this powerful play.”
“Real Women Have Curves,” opens on Friday, Aug. 24 and runs until Sunday, Sept. 9. Tickets are $27 each and can be purchased online at depottheatre.org, or by calling the box office at 962-4449.
On Wednesday, Aug. 29, self-proclaimed “Depot Theatre Groupie” George Davis will bring his storytelling skills to the Depot Stage with stories about the Depot Theatre. Part of the Depot Theatre’s “Tonight Only!” series, “The Depot Stories,” will be an evening of oral and digital storytelling about the Depot Theatre’s 33 year long history and the quirky nature of a professional theatre set in an active train station.
“Since our historic walls can’t talk, we’re going to do that for them,” Davis said. “We’ve got stories from Depot performers, audience members, staff, and even Mo, the Depot Theatre cat.”
Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online at depottheatre.org, or by calling the box office at 962-4449.
