Behind the Scenes



This event has passed

Join “theatremaker to watch” (American Theatre) and Elliot Norton Award-winning storyteller Sara Porkalob (Dragon Lady, Dragon Mama, 1776 upcoming), composer Brian Quijada (Where Did We Sit on the Bus?), and director Andrew Russell (Dragon Lady, Dragon Mama) for a conversation about Dragon Baby, the final chapter in Porkalob’s autobiographical trilogy about three generations of Filipino Americans descended from gangsters and karaoke singers fighting to survive, thrive, and love. Learn about what’s new, what’s changed, and what’s remained over the last year of development since the collaborators’ previous Behind the Scenes conversation in November 2020.
