Dynasty Dygest: July 9th


Dearest Darlings, 

Happy post-long weekend! We hope it was a time of recharging and rejuvenating and enjoying your life. We also hope every day is a day of enjoying your life! Whenever you’re really not enjoying your life, take a pause and try to see if you can (legally) eliminate the not good thing, and if you can, DO! And if you can’t, look the not good thing squarely in the face (or approximate face) and say, “I see you. I accept you. Let’s try to find our way through this, compadre.” And that’s your dose of Dynasty wisdom for the day. YOU'RE WELCOME!

We had a lovely little break, with the dark nights at the theater affording us some time to get cozy with loved ones and season 3 of Stranger Things. Saturday’s GO DAY was a gosh darn dream, we laughed,  we learned about delicious CBD chocolates from the founder of Calivolve! BARRY & JASON started a month-long creative accountability buddy group tentatively titled the Bud-Holes! SHELLY SLOCUM talked about the patriarchy (RELAX, men! You’re safe!) and got us VERY excited for her upcoming show with RACHEL BLOOM and KAY CANNON and more, JAMIE talked about his time in Big Sur and shared a powerpoint he made that included some truly inspiring transitions and text effects (who knew words could UNDULATE?!) AND it was BABY FRANCIE's first time on the Dynasty stage. She accompanied Vanessa for the whole event and was the picture of poise and grace (and intense slumber.) Saturday night’s Dynasty Tonight featured some of our favorite performers making us feel our favorite things (happy! enchanted! excited!) including KEVIN NEALON killing it as per usual, FELICIA FOLKES serving up auntie-vibes that belie her youth, PAM SEVERNS doing the coziest burlesque we’ve ever seen, and RON FUNCHES giving us forty minutes of heaven. Yesterday we got our adrenaline spiked (we are total adrenaline junkies as long as the adrenaline can be procured in a safe, quiet, seated position) by announcing ONLY to our mailing list (that’s you!) that HANNAH GADSBY would be returning to the Dynasty this week! We sent the email and watched the clock, within minutes her show was totally sold out (and we were getting emails wondering why tickets said “unavailable.” Because they sold, darlings! They sold SO FAST. We’ve got some lightning-fingers on our list!) 

ANYWAY!  THURSDAY we have two powerhouses in the house, which we consider a powerhouse, making this a POWERHOUSE NIGHT to the THIRD POWER (Powerhouse Night ^3, or “PHN cubed™")  First up, ROSE ABDOO (Gypsy from Gilmore girls! A real star from STARS HOLLOW IS COMING TO US!) in her solo show, Rose Abdoo & Rose Abdon’tThen we have the afore mentioned, immediately sold-out HANNAH GADSBY show. 

FRIDAY night, house favorite ELIOT GLAZER’s Haunting Renditions: bad music made good. This week Eliot will be joined by JACKIE TOHN (GLOW), CECILY STRONG (SNL), JEN KIRKMAN and ELI BRADEN. Oh, and you know, the ORCHESTRA he brings with him! Don’t miss this show! 

SATURDAY, it’s our show of comedy and surprises with a hand-picked lineup and machine-popped corn, Dynasty Tonight! This week’s lineup features host with most, ATSUKO OKATSUKA! The man with the good ol’boy voice but the woke-new boy soul (our description, not his) BILLY WAYNE DAVIS! Plus JAY LARSON and mooooore surprises and delights TBA. 

SUNDAY the hilarious, smart and insightful SHELLY SLOCUM returns with her show, THE FETAL POSITONThis show. benefitting Planned Parenthood, promises to be informative and hilarious and attending also has the added bonus of being an act of resistance against everyone that wants women to shut up about their bodies and rights! We LOVE acts of resistance that involve great popcorn and great lineups. ABOUT THAT LINEUP! RACHEL BLOOM! (Crazy Ex Girlfriend!) KAY CANNON! (Pitch Perfect!) JAMIE DENBO (Ronna and Beverly!) plus MORE (including a sex therapist!) What a world, what a week, what a time to be alive. 

Muskrat love, 

Jamie & Vanessa
