When you spend your life dreaming, what happens when you finally get what you want?
Portland’s Latino theater group, Miracle Theater presents “Boom-crackle-fly,” a world premier production written by Charise Castro Smith and directed by Olga Sanchez.
Presented in English, the play weaves together in a clever combination of science fiction and magical realism three seemingly disparate stories.
In a New York barrio, a female impersonator ignores the advice of an imaginary grandmother to fall in love with an insatiable scientist; in a Key West circus, two acrobat sisters are divided over the ghost of Ernest Hemingway; and in revolutionary Havana, a man who wishes he had wings yearns to fly away to another land.
The preview performance is scheduled Thursday, March 16 at Milagro Theatre, 525 S.E. Stark St., with the opening night coming the following Friday, March 25. The production will continue shows through April 16.
Tickets are $14 to $25 and can be purchased by visiting the website milagro.org or by calling 503-236-7253.
