A XMAS CUENTO REMIX 2020 PRODUCTION UPDATE 

Thank you for your patience as you waited, with great anticipation, for the release of A Xmas Cuento Remix.

After weeks of working with our production team to bring you this story, we regret to inform you that the production of A Xmas Cuento Remix will not be ready in time for this holiday. Given the technological challenges, we will have to overcome to release the final production, setting a future date of release is not feasible at this time.

Milagro is not in the movie-making business, we are a theatre company, who amongst a global pandemic, tried to experiment with a new type of film making to continue telling stories. It is with heartfelt regret and disappointment that we bring you this news.

To bring you the holiday cheer we have promised, we are offering ticket holders the opportunity to view the archival video from Milagro’s 2019 production of A Xmas Cuento Remix directed by Alexandra Meda.

Here is a link to a trailer of A Xmas Cuento Remix which was produced by Milagro for live audiences in December 2019 and filmed in Portland, Oregon. For more information about the 2019 production visit the 2019 A Xmas Cuento Remix page.
