Happy Earth Day from Milagro and Super Ana!

Happy 45th Earth Day! This happy salmon scene is a detail of the backdrop recently completed by muralist and designer José Solis. (You can see the entire thing below.)

Teatro Milagro, the touring arts and education arm of the company, continues to partner with Metro to make our local government’s  recycling work easier, and also make it easier for all of us to do our part!

Something new in the neighborhood

Our neighborhood, the Central Eastside Industrial District is getting hotter day by day, with great eateries and bars, in addition to the cultural institutions that are OMSI, Oregon Ballet Theatre and Milagro. We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate our neighbors from Kachka on being shortlisted for the James Beard award this year… good luck in May! One issue that people are concerned about when coming to one of our performances or workshops is the parking. The regulations apply as the signs indicate from 8 a.m. to 6...

Caution! Art in rapid progress

Some times art just seems to flow and the time flies as we are creating. Other times, the inspiration just pours out and soon you are in front of a beautiful work. In this case, the award-winning designer and muralist José Solis (and his assistant) are progressing at breakneck speed while creating the mural that will serve as the backdrop to Super Ana!, the newest offer from the touring troupe, Teatro Milagro (more on that soon).  The three pictures above were taken in the space of 24 hours and take us from the blank, stretched canvas,...

Photo of the Day: Enter (America) at your own risk

Fresh on the heels of Jewish Theatre Collaborative‘s ingenious dark satire, The Ministry of Special Cases, Milagro is busy building the set for our upcoming, season-closing show, American Night: the Ballad of Juan José, preparing for its Portland premiere on May 1 (preview on April 30). Perhaps representative of the land of opportunity, the set for this sharp-witted ride through US history features a lot of doorways. Then again, the design by Megan Wilkerson may just need all these entrances for the dozens of characters played by our...
