Peter Marks of The Washington Post says
"Lypsinka's 'Passion': Deeper Than Drag.

The fabulousness of Lypsinka has been established so definitively that it could be cited in case law."

AN IMPORTANT NOTE FROM LYPSINKA HERSELF

Darlings, the good news is that the "Mommie Dearest (Hollywood Royalty Edition)" DVD is out featuring John Waters and moi. It's the 25th anniversary of the heaven-sent, nutty movie this September.

The bad news is that Paramount Pictures, the company that released the film and the DVD, misspelled the name Lypsinka on the packaging and on the featurette inside. No wonder Joan Crawford never worked at Paramount!

They took the info from imdb.com, which actually has 3 spellings of the name. The correct one is on imdb.com (it's Lypsinka, folks!) but Paramount chose Lipsynka without checking with me.

To that end, I have registered the domain name lipsynka.com, which is actually pointed to lypsinka.com, and you are gazing at that this very second!

I have asked imdb.com to put only the correct spelling on their website, but so far they have not done it, because indeed there have been mistakes over the years by other film and television companies who have misspelled the name. Well, I can't blame Paramount for that!

Honestly, I'm grateful to Paramount for asking me to be a part of the DVD, and I hope they ask me again to be a part of another project. They have promised to correct the problem when they reprint the "Mommie Dearest" DVD, so buy 'em now, because the incorrect copy will become a collector's item.

As a matter of fact, you can buy both the "Mommie Dearest" and the "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?" DVDs right here below, through amazon.com. I did the audio commentary with Charles Busch on "Baby Jane" and we had a great time!

Bless all of you!!!

 


The San Francisco Chronicle says Lypsinka is, "Always mesmerizing!" (May 14, 2006)

The San Francisco Bay Times says "The Passion of the Crawford" is "An exceptional evening! Lypsinka has every subtle and not so subtle nuance of JC down pat. This is not your usual over-the-top drag impersonation. That would be cheap and easy. This is a skilled actress doing a flawless interpretation. This show is hysterical, without having to insert too much hysteria. The crazy broad-shouldered broad is portrayed in an almost restrained manner. But never too reserved. After all, this is that mad diva, Joan Crawford!" (May 18, 2006)

The San Francisco Bay Guardian says: "It’s sad to think that the traditional gay love of ’50s camp and glamour might be lost on our young generation of queers, who often seem too busy fetishizing ’70s roller-disco wear to commit the barbed one-liners of Bette Davis movies to memory. Luckily our youth can learn how to read the high drama of Joan Crawford as gay from John Epperson [Lypsinka]...[W]ith The Passion of the Crawford, the performer embodies with eerie, wax-museum accuracy Mommie Dearest herself, piecing her together from interviews that attempt to reveal the woman behind the icon." (May 17, 2006)

Richard Dodds of the San Francisco Bay Area Reporter says "The Passion of the Crawford" is "Fun!" and "Loaded with laughs!"

The Heatherette fashion show was a mob scene.  But it was worth the wait getting in just to find myself
sitting next to my idol - Veruschka!  The name Lypsinka was inspired by hers!

The profile of none other than Carson Kressley taking in the show and the crowd.

This sculpted dress was the best piece in the show. The boy in the background is not a bad piece either.
The two hats in the foreground belong to The Baroness Sherry Von Korber Bernstein (the feathered
one on the right) and Sylvia Miles!

Modern creature Amande Lepore was revealed from a toy box at the end of the infantilized fashion show.

Hilariously, Miss Piggy was seated between Lizzie Grubman, Lynn Yeager and Lauren Ezersky!
