Join “theatremaker to watch” (American Theatre) and Elliot Norton Award-winning storyteller Sara Porkalob (Dragon Lady, Dragon Mama, 1776 upcoming), composer Brian Quijada, and director Andrew Russell (Dragon Lady, Dragon Mama), for a conversation about the development of 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. In this interactive session, learn about the team’s collaborative process, experience never-before-heard songs from the show, and engage in an autobiographical storytelling exercise.
