NOTE: With all the love for the cast and crew I must say I do not support or endorse MILAGRO THEATRE. I am grateful for the cast and crew that made this experience lovely. However, I cannot underestimate the damage the leadership of Milagro did to our production.  I feel for the staff members who have been deceived by the leadership of Milagro Theatre. Sadly the board has done nothing to prevent harm to the Latine artist of Portland.  Please see the Instagram page @Sinmilagros for more context.
