This gorgeous book beautifully captures the sentiment, drama and glamour of Teatro de los Muertos through 50 stunning color photos by Russell J. Young. The book brings the art of the theater that celebrates the Day of the Dead alive through colorful, dramatic images taken of Day of the Dead productions at the Milagro Theater over the last 6 years. With a heartfelt forward written by the Milagro's Artistic Director, this captivating book tells the story of this emotional and spiritual celebration by pictorially exposing the process of creating authentic and inspirational theater as seen only at the Milagro and only through the eyes of Russell J. Young. (Christy Drogosch, Theatre artist & educator)
