$5-29

The Miracle's current show begins as the lighthearted, flirtatious tale of two young people meeting and falling in love in 1950s Puerto Rico—and then it jumps 30-plus years in the future. Suddenly our promising young couple is old and married and living in Alabama, and we abruptly find out just where their American dreams have gotten them. Boleros has a lot to say how empty the promises of the land of opportunity often are, but its primary concern is the reality of "forever" versus the ease with which young couples pledge it at the altar—and under the direction of Antonio Sonera, this is communicated with humor and spirit that only occasionally tips toward the outright maudlin.
