Milagro kicks off Season 36 with the world premier of Amor Añejo. Our 24th annual original work, this year's bilingual Día de Muertos production dives into a world of aging, loss, and love.
Like a finely aged tequila, the love of long-lasting romance is sweet and heady. Hector and Rosalita's journey is full of highs and lows but they hold hands on the ride for decades, until the very last drop. Until one crosses over to el otro lado, the other side… That’s when Bombón steps in, the shape-shifter of the underworld, Huéhuécoyotl, to guide their hearts back to the place where death can never part them, in memories and dance, on el Día de Muertos.
Elizabeth is delighted to return to direct her fourth show here at Milagro theatre and her first time writing and creating a Diá de Los Muertos show. Other shows at Milagro include: Watsonville, Some Place Not Here, American Night, Oedipus El Rey. Elizabeth’s play, Bon temp Roulez at the Shakespeare Café, now a musical currently in development in Pittsburgh, was commissioned and translated into German and she directed it’s second international production last season for Bremer Shakespeare Company. Her other play, the solo show Not My Revolution has been performed in Portland, Albuquerque, New York, Hanau and Bremen Germany. She is currently writing and developing an Asylum project: The Sphere of Human Follies with her production company Chain Reaction Theatre. Other Portland directing projects include: King John, Lion in Winter, Mary Stuart (NWCTC), Antony and Cleopatra (PAE), November ( JANE, a theatre company), Ladies Man (Clackamas Rep), Oedipus the King, Trojan Women (CGTO). Elizabeth is also an actress and will be traveling to Albuquerque in January to perform in the first regional production of the Broadway show: Gary, A Sequel to Titus Andronicus by Taylor Mack. She hopes you enjoy today’s show and that you will return to see the other great shows in Milagro’s 36th season: Con Todo Corazón.
