Dynasty Dygest — July 16th


Hey Beach Blanket Baby-Darlings, 

Well, if you wish for summer long enough, THIS happens. (It's getting hot here in Los Angeles.) 🤷‍♀️ 🥵 But let’s talk about happy things, like shows at Dynasty in the comfort of the always crankin’ A/C. Ahhhh. We kept it cool last week with some truly exceptional shows. ROSE ABDOO was as delightful as she herself is (and she is VERY delightful.) HANNAH GADBSY’s return of DOUGLAS was a triumph; her show was amazing at its debut in March and has only gotten more polished and insightful and funny... which we honestly wouldn’t have thought necessary. She’s very talented. It’s a bit much! Like, the perfect amount of much. ELIOT GLAZER’s Haunting Renditions gave us allll that bad music and made it sooooo good. CECILY STRONG turned up and turned out in early aughts fashion with a gorgeous duet of “I’m Real” that somehow elevated the J.Lo / Ja Rule masterpiece. JEN KIRKMAN talked about the good ol’ days, JACKIE TOHN talked about her good ol' days on American Idol and performed an acoustic version of “Baby Got Back” that made us love- nay, ADORE, big butts. AGAIN. In shattering news, “Bugaboo” isn't the timeless ballad we thought it was. 

Saturday’s DYNASTY TONIGHT was a gem - the whole line-up was wonderful, the DynaPop flowed like liquid popcorn, and we had a magician (BEN SEIDMAN) who made us remember, as magicians always do, “Dang, magic is fun.” Sunday’s FETAL POSITION show marked the first of many times that the theater entrance will be transformed into an elegant vagina. SHELLY SLOCUM delivered a hell of a show that was equal parts informative, hilarious, gross, not at all gross, and really good in all the ways. JAMIE DENBO gave a diatribe on pads we’ll never forget, KAY CANNON regaled us with a cautionary tale of pain-management, and RACHEL BLOOM sang a beautiful ballad (rightfully) accusing God of not understanding women's bodies. All that annnnnd the proceeds went to Planned Parenthood! Great people putting on great shows to do great things… kinda the best. 

THIS WEEK we’re up to our usual theater-based mischief. TOMORROW join us for TAYLOR TOMLINSONTHURSDAY it’s LINDSAY AMES’ show baby, the hilarious and exposing My Diary with diary readings from RHEA BUTCHER, JOHN HENNIGAN  and more. FRIDAY we welcome BRENDAN SCANNELL (The Cure with Joel Kim Booster, NETFLIX’ Bonding)  for his solo show I Promise This Will Be Cute! If he promises, we believvvve honey. SATURDAY it’s our hometown honeys show, Dynasty Tonight! This week, BEACH BLANKET DYNGO edition! Come on down for some indoor, air-conditioned, good ol’ fashioned summer fun! The line-up will be top notch (FAHIM ANWAR and SASHEER ZAMATA confirmed so far), the surprises will be surprising, and the Dyngo (Dynasty Bingo) will be dusted off and ready for some action. 
In life-news, we had the pleasure of using the theater as our private movie theater this weekend for both Jamie and Vanessa’s families. We watched The Princess Bride (it holds up! Except how REALLY mean Wesley [as The Dread Pirate Roberts] is to Buttercup when he’s first reunited with her. He’s vicious and he threatens to hit her! Why is he taking that little charade so far? Is it because he’s so mad she is engaged to Humperdink? If so, he’s got some major jealousy issues he needs to work through before he’s ready for an adult relationship.) It was such a special afternoon, and seeing the theater full of our families ranging from ages two and a half weeks to ninety three years was pretty darn magical. 

Thank you all for becoming our ever-growing Dynasty family. We’ll screen movies for you, too!

How do YOU top YOUR pop?*,

Jamie & Vanessa
