About Dragon Lady
After a run at OBERON in the spring of 2018, virtuosic performer Sara Porkalob returns with new songs in her musical Dragon Lady and also turns her attention to another chapter of her family’s history with Dragon Mama, the second piece in her Dragon Cycle.
It is the year of the Water Dragon and the eve of Grandma Maria’s 60th birthday. By the light of the karaoke machine, fueled by pork dumplings and Diet Pepsi, she shares a dark secret from her Filipino gangster past with one lucky grandchild. Traversing 50 years of faulty family memories, this timely new musical is about what it means to come to America. The Seattle Times calls Dragon Lady, “Commanding and irresistible…a fierce and vibrant memoir.”
