Dynasty Dygest: Aug13th

Happy Dynasty newsletter day to all,

We hope this note finds you well! We wish it could be written on parchment, rolled into a scroll, sealed with wax and delivered by a large clever bird. Alas, we're forced to settle for digital mail delivered by digital “chimp.” MOVING ON. 

You know what can be rough? Life. We love sending you happy silly emails, and we love feeling (1) happy and (2) silly. But lately, truth be told, the weight of the world is nearly impossible to escape. We’ve been having unfortunate conversations like “what is our gun policy?” (answer: no guns!) and while enjoying our own families, thinking about all those who have been separated. While trying to create magical, childlike experiences, there are scores of children who are in the midst of unthinkable trauma at uncaring hands. What do we do with this? As a society? As creatives? As people with hearts? We’ll be voting, we’ll be making calls and sending letters, and we’ll be getting up every day attempting to center our hearts and minds around our mission, which is to do good and make good and help put some positivity in the world. This is not the content you came for! But we just wanted to let you know that we're aware a lot of us are feeling very “what’s the point.”  We’re tying to remember that the point is sometimes absurdity and happiness and escape. The point is opening our doors to great experiences and sharing them with great people. And hopefully all that good stuff can help energize us to work against all that bad stuff, and hopefully Dynasty becomes for many what it already is for us, a place full of love and humor and art and celebrations.

Oh, look!
If you donate more than $100 dollars this week and send us a receipt, we’ll PUT UP A MARQUEE OF YOUR CHOICE!  AND throw in tickets to an upcoming show. And we’ll even split a Lindt with youThat’s right! Give a charity $100 or more, and we’ll do it up big for you. A custom marquee is a great way to: 
  • celebrate something!
  • do a weird joke!
  • taunt a reality TV star that's begging for it!
  • propose?!
