"Josefina López's play, Real Women Have Curves, is an empowering drama and also a poignant celebration of female resilience. Staged with an abundance of heart and humor, and with a wonderful cast who breathe life into the characters, Grand Canyon University is presenting a lovely production of López's rich narrative that celebrates the enduring strength and beauty of women....Bertha Alicia Cortes' direction perfectly captures the pressures, passion, and vulnerability of the characters and their circumstances with excellent pacing and staging that makes great use of William Symington's realistic, rundown-factory set. The play is an ensemble piece and the cast all deliver detailed and natural performances that connect with the audience....a charming crowd-pleaser. It also serves as a poignant social commentary on body positivity and challenging unrealistic beauty standards while emphasizing the importance of embracing and accepting yourself as you are."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)
