Photo Recap: Dynasty Typewriter At SXSW

We had a great time bringing a little bit of the Dynasty flavor to SXSW in Austin, Texas! The show was a success, with a packed room at Esther’s Follies and a lineup of twinkling stars including: Paul F Tompkins, Busy Philipps, Kurt Braunohler, Debra DiGiovanni, Megan Gailey and a cameo from internet yoga sensation, Yoga with Adriene’s Adriene Mishler. We LOVED the show, everyone killed, but you know what… we missed you Dynasty. We were reminded other crowds are… rowdy! Luckily the all-star cast served the drunk German heckler and her friends (is it still heckling if she wasn’t mean? Just like, loud?) some comedic justice (coming soon to TruTV jk but it would be good.)

Photo Recap: Dynasty Typewriter at Politicon

We were approached by Politicon about injecting a little (more) comedy into their two day convention by becoming their official comedy partners. Us? Political? We knew immediately what our platform would be. Something near and dear to our hearts. Something divisive, provocative, and very very now. DYNAPOP. The World’s ONLY Non-partisan Popcorn. We gathered a team of comedians, some of our staff, some NECESSARY elements for the booth (prize wheel, popcorn mascot suits, fake trees) and got the LA Convention Center poppin’. It was the first use of our DynaPop mascot, Poppy D, and he did NOT disappoint. Thanks to all of the performers who lent their talent to this event: The Lucas Brothers, The OC’s Skye and Nancy Collins (Carrie Clifford & Marc Evan Jackson), Drennon Davis, Lizzy Cooperman, Tad Rams, Chris Fairbanks, and Nate Craig. Plus, all of our amazing Dynasty Staffers and the Politicon crew.

Meet Dynasty Diva: Dolly Levi

Dolly Levi

In anticipation of the premiere edition of Divas of Dynasty, our first all-drag-revue at Dynasty Typewriter, we're catching up with some of the performers who will be gracing the stage. 

Dolly Levi is a actor, dancer, choreographer and member of the Dreamgirls Revue.

When were you first introduced to drag and why did it make an impact?
D: WAAAAAAAY back in the Shakespearian times when I learned that DRAG meant Dressed Resembling A Girl.

Which of your talents are you most proud of and why?
D: It's not a matter what talents I'm most proud of, it's the fact that I'm proud that I can do what I do for as long as I've been doing it and the people who come to see it enjoy it.

What do you like to do when you're NOT in drag?
D: Research, Im always researcing for new ways to tell a story.

What’s your go-to lip-sync song, and why?
D: All That Jazz, I just wanna fucking dance. And Holding Out For A Hero. It's all about doing things that I love, telling a story you can relate to and energizing an audience, making them feel good. These songs do all of that.

If you could have an all-queen dream dinner party, who’d be invited?
D: The pioneers of our time: Charles Pierce, Quentin Crisp, Christine Jorgensen, and Danny La Rue.


Divas of Dynasty kicks off on May 25th with a star-studded cornucopia of entertainers.  Directed & hosted by Tye Blue, this unique theatrical experience stars Pandora Boxx, as well as master illusionist Vancie Vega, beloved So Cal favorites Dolly Levi and Borgia BloomGet more info here.

In anticipation of the premiere edition of Divas of Dynasty, our first all-drag-revue at Dynasty Typewriter, we're catching up with some of the performers who will be gracing the stage. 

RuPaul's Drag Race alumni Pandora Boxx is a self proclaimed geeky weirdo who is addicted to glitter and making people laugh.

When were you first introduced to drag and why did it make an impact?
P: I guess I had seen drag on television before but never identified it as such. I think mostly because it was the butt of the joke. Then I saw a real live drag show and I was like, I want to go to there. Actually, the very first performer I ever saw was my gal pal Darienne Lake (who also happened to get on RuPaul's Drag Race too!). I was enraptured by how the crowd lived for her AND they gave her money! Sign me up! It also meant I could create anything I wanted. I was my own writer, producer, director and I could bring all these visions to life.

Which of your talents are you most proud of and why?
P: Drinking. Ha! Honestly, I don't know how to answer that question very seriously. I'm not well at tooting my own horn. Though I do know I seem to have a knack for making people giggle.

What do you like to do when you're NOT in drag?
P: Sleep.

What’s your go-to lip-sync song, and why?
P: Total Eclipse of the Heart. It really is a perfect drag song andI love Bonnie Tyler's raspy voice. I add a little comedy twist to it that I only just started a few years back. It was so simple but it gets a laugh every time. 

If you could have an all-queen dream dinner party, who’d be invited?
P: All my friends are drag queens so I've already lived this. But if we are just talking queens in general then I'd say Madonna, Queen Elizabeth, Oprah and Kathy Griffin. Can you imagine THAT dinner party?
