THEATER | "Pura's Beauty" 

Latino Theatre Productions' newest show, "Pura's Beauty," is a counterpart to the group's "Macho's Place," presented last year. That was a one-act, one-hour play set in a barbershop; this is a one-act, one-hour play set in a locally-owned beauty salon. It also sounds a bit like a Latin version of "Steel Magnolias." A group of women gather at Pura's not only to get their hair done, but also to find companionship and a safe haven to discuss their problems, which seem to center on men: one woman thinks she may be pregnant, another's husband is having an affair, and so on. "Pura's Beauty" is written and directed by Nydia Rivera.

Latino Theatre Productions presents "Pura's Beauty" on Friday, December 12, and Saturday, December 13, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, December 14, at 2 p.m., at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
