I consider myself a storyteller who acts, directs, and writes. I gravitate toward stories expressing dynamic and dysfunctional relationships that reflect our social and interpersonal climate. I aspire to make stories and storytelling more accessible to and representative of marginalized artists and patrons.
As a storyteller, I have a passion for analyzing and discussing philosophy of art and beauty, books, film, music, theatre, and art/artists, finding joy in singing/playing music, writing songs and poems, and taking in nature.
As an actor, director, and writer, I'm always in the process of telling a story and/or have several in the works. Read about my current and upcoming creations.
I am a storyteller who acts, directs, and writes. I aspire to tell important stories in the medium that is right for that story at that point in history. My headshots resume, and demos tell the story of who I am as an artist.
My artistry uplifts the things we already know but are afraid to confront; discussing mortality, grief in all its forms, love through hatred, family, etc. My art doesn't make you lean in. It instead makes you sit back and wait a few seconds to let it sink in.
Billy Elliot (Actor)
"The big surprise for me is young Lana Sage, whose portrayal of Susan’s neighbor Gloria is mature, nuanced, and utterly authentic. Alternately funny, and sad, gawky and adept, sarcastic and loving, confident and needy, Sage captures all of the contradictions of adolescence in her performance."
"Lana's ability to transform her character, so subtly throughout the show, was stunning."
“Sage does well in the role of the teen who you love and hate at the same time.”
"Much of the dialogue is sung. Some of the stand-out numbers are “Link by Link” (Pierce), “Lights of Long Ago” (by the amazing, Stewart), the haunting, “A Place Called Home” (Cash, Johnsen, McGehee and Lana Sage), the rousing, “Abundance and Charity” (Kennedy), and the touching, “God Bless Us Everyone” (Company)."
