Just know what it is you’re joining.” — Oregon Arts Watch “This is a strange and wonderful piece, taking us on a journey through our history” — Dennis...

Actor Ozvaldo González returns to the Milagro stage in the title role of American Night: the Ballad of Juan José, in a performance that “underplays the character perfectly, so that you can empathize with him and identify with his plight” (Dennis Sparks). With opening weekend under his belt, González had a moment to answer some questions from Marketing Assistant Vicente Guzman-Orozco about the play, his role and the production in general: Vicente Guzman-Orozco: How would you describe the play and your role?

Our outgoing (but not truly departing!) Artistic Director, Olga Sanchez, reminded us of a truly happy...

American Night is “exceptional!” – Review excerpts

The following highlights have been taken from the review Home is Where the Heart is on Dennis Sparks: All Things Performing Arts: “This is a strange and wonderful piece, taking us on a journey through our history… The story is told with nine actors playing a variety of roles, as well as a voice over by Adrienne Flagg, and they are quite amazing… [T]he purpose of the play is not so much to answer questions for Juan but to have us ask questions of ourselves about the issues presented. [Director Elizabeth] Huffman is absolutely...
