Milagro Theatre’s bilingual celebration of the Day of the Dead celebrates another year at 525 SE Stark St. Thursday through Sunday October 18 to November 10. It’s the Rose City’s renowed celebration of the Day of the Dead and this year’s show is directed by Lakin Valdez of El Teatro Campesino.
Amanda and Juan, a fated couple, want to spice things up in their failing marriage, so they decide to go on a second honeymoon to a romantic B&B, but they should never have listened to their GPS… Luckily, in the land of the dead, los muertitos really know how to live it up.
Friday Oct. 18 is opening night and there’ll be a reception event catered by La Bonita restaurant. An ASL interpretated performance is Sunday, Oct. 27 (contact box office for seating).
