Intiman Co-curator Sara Porkalob will portray multiple family members from three generations in this hysterical, moving and brand new musical based on characters that Porkalob has been developing for years. This world premiere features a live band, an intimate theatre setting, and a plot that includes gangsters, murders and more. DRAGON LADY is a timely musical explores what it means to come to America.
Sara Porkalob is best known for her solo show, Dragon Lady, a hilarious family history featuring a badass Filipina grandma with a gangster past. The range of characters she’s capable of playing with fidelity, and her ability to create a fully fleshed-out world onstage by merely switching back and forth between these creations, is impressive. In addition to launching an intersectional peer-review writing collective, drafting music for a one-woman musical and prepping for a few upcoming directing gigs, she’ll be performing on no less than four stages in the month of October alone!
