It's another beautiful day... of being on our own and full of despair. But we have to laugh. We have to find things to laugh about.
We asked Broadway-bound performer Sara Porkalob if she would please sing the musical theater chestnut about being on your own and full of despair—"On My Own" from Les Miserables—because it seemed apropos.
She turned in the funniest goddamn message in this series.*
Rewriting lyrics as she goes. Practicing skin care.
The 1776 revival sounds amazing. It will have a female, non-binary, and trans cast.
Sara is playing Edward Rutledge, the one who sings "Molasses to Rum." She's going to steal the show.

Sara is an award winning artist-activist and creator of the Dragon Cycle, a trilogy of plays about her family—one play for each generation, built around a central female protagonist. The first in the cycle, Dragon Lady, won three Gregory Awards.
The second in the cycle, Dragon Mama, premiered at American Repertory Theatre (ART) and won Best Original Script and Best Solo Performance for the 2019 Elliot Norton Awards. ART has commissioned the third in the cycle, Dragon Baby; it will premiere on their stage in the near future.
So long as there is a future.
