The Miracle Theatre's annual Day of the Dead show makes for a holiday tradition a damn sight more interesting than The Nutcracker. This year's production is loosely organized around the artistic journey of a young singer, as she learns her craft from a master and eventually becomes a master herself. The bilingual production has the effortlessly entertaining quality of an old-time vaudeville show, with dance, acrobatics, music, and sketches providing no shortage of entertaining eye candy. The show's only false notes come from the occasional 1950's-style "commercial interruption"—while funny, these product placements make little sense in the context of the larger work. AH
