I recently had the opportunity to spend time with the folks from The Miracle Theatre Group, The Milagro Theatre, in Portland. The Hispanic theater and arts outreach organization, which will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year, is staffed by incredibly passionate and dedicated individuals. Their performance calendar includes works in English, in Spanish with English supertitles, and bilingual in both English and Spanish. I had the opportunity to see Riaz, a bilingual Day of the Dead spectacle that was amusing, entertaining, and thought provoking. Whether you are a Spanish-speaker or not, if you're a fan of theater, I recommend taking in a show by the Miracle Theatre Group when you're in Portland.
The following performances are on the Miracle Theatre Group's remaining 2012-2013 season schedule:
- Frida, Un Retablo - Jan 10 to 19, 2013
- La Celestina - Feb 7 to Mar 2, 2013
- Guapa - Mar 21 to Apr 13, 2013
- Dance for a Dollar - May 2 to 25, 2013
