Reviewing the rash of Christmas-themed theater that breaks out every holiday season is unquestionably the worst part of my job. Halloween shows fare better—I'll take fake gore over fake cheer any day. Better still is the Miracle Theatre's annual Day of the Dead show, which celebrates Mexico's Día de los Muertos with an original production combining theater, music, and dance. The details of the Miracle's annual date with death vary—this year's offering is more linear than usual, as the character-driven ¡Viva Don Juan! draws from history and language more than movement. Song and dance numbers are lively, and jokes hit equally in English and (judging from the laughs) Spanish. If this show isn't already a holiday tradition? Make it one. ALISON HALLETT
