DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the Altadena home of drag superstar Jackie Beat to talk with Jackie and her BFF Mario Diaz about their upcoming stage show Who's Da Boss, a loving tribute to the 80's sitcom Who's the Boss? The pair talk about why they wanted to take on Who's the Boss? tapping into their Judith Light and Tony Danza alter-egos, getting one of the show's original stars Danny Pintauro to play himself and the fun of putting together their character's looks. They recall how they originally met in New York City in the mid-90s, starting a NY theater company together and juggling shows with money-making gigs. Dennis also talks to Mario about his career as one of the city's most successful and beloved club promoters, choosing and styling go-go boys and how it feels to bring fun, sexy, life-affirming times to the throngs of folks who love his clubs. Other topics include: the big piss contest, the two actresses who made Jackie starstruck, the International Male catalogue, dancing for Barbra Streisand and the biggest trouble they ever got in in school.
