The "Miracle" Years: José Eduardo González & Dañel Malán
José Eduardo González and Dañel Malán are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the company they founded, Portland’s Miracle Theatre.
José grew up in Portland, while Dañel hails from California. "We disagree on anything and everything you can possibly imagine," says José.

José directs the theater, and Dañel runs the company’s bilingual touring company, Teatro Milagro. When they started they were just looking for a venue to do all kinds of modern theater, but the company has evolved into Oregon’s only Latino theater organization — and one of just a few in the Northwest.
José and Dañel sat down with April to talk about their start-up years, sharing decisions at work, and keeping a balance at home.
