So Very English: An Hour with the Cast of Sleepy Hollow

So Very English: An Hour with the Cast of Sleepy Hollow

By

Janina Gavankar and Tom Mison didn’t wait for the moderator to introduce them to take the stage for the Sleepy Hollow panel Sunday morning in the Westin Peachtree Ballroom at 10AM. They popped out on stage waving and smiling at the crowd, at least pretending to be quite awake and lively at that hour. While the audience was getting organized to ask questions, the moderator asked both of the cast members about last season’s crossover with Bones and whether a

Before Batman: An Hour with the Cast of Gotham

By

The “Gotham: Secret Stories” panel at 5:30PM in the Marriot Atrium Ballroom on Saturday was not only full to near capacity, it was packed with guests, too. David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Chris Chalk, and Drew Powell joined moderator Tony Gowell to answer questions and tell stories from the behind the scenes of Gotham. The questions from the audience were a little slow in starting, and Taylor was amused by the idea of a panel where we all

Let the Symphony Begin: A Night with the Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra

By

The Centennial I–III ballrooms in the Hyatt were completely full to see the Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra perform on Saturday night at 8PM. People waited patiently outside the room for seats to open up as people exited as well. It was impressive to walk in and see the orchestra filling the stage in the room. Conductor John Morrison has served as music director of the Georgia Philharmonic since 2010. For more than a decade, Morrison has been the executive director of

When in Doubt, Blow Stuff Up

By

Anytime that a Mythbuster visits Dragon Con, it is sure to be an interesting and fun panel. The hour with Tory Belleci and Kari Byron in the Hilton Grand Salon West Saturday at 4PM was no exception. The room was full to capacity, and there was a general mood of anticipation as everyone filed to a seat. Byron wasted little time in teasing a big announcement that would be made public for the first time. The reveal finally came toward

Storytime in Middle-earth

By

Both Ryan Gage and Craig Parker are natural storytellers, which made the “Middle-earth Cinema Guests” panel at 11:30AM Saturday in the Marriot Imperial Ballroom go incredibly quickly, despite the caffeine and sleep deprivation everyone was feeling. Parker and Gage both had coffee delivered during the panel. One of the best stories from the panel involved the casting of the elves. Parker said they must have gotten every beautiful male model in New Zealand over 6 feet to play the elves.

I’m Not a Junkie but I’m Considering Taking up the Habit

I’m Not a Junkie but I’m Considering Taking up the Habit

By

Scott Sigler, best-selling author of far too many books to mention, met with his “Junkies” in Hilton 202 on Friday night at 10PM. Due to the later hour, it was definitely not a kid-friendly environment. It was, however, a drink-friendly environment as evidenced by the large percentage of attendees that brought their own flasks, bottles, and drinks of various sorts as well as the beer that was delivered by partner-in-crime ARealGirl (AB Kovacs) on the way to her own panel.

Thanksgiving Versus Christmas: A Musical for The Ages

Thanksgiving Versus Christmas: A Musical for The Ages

By

Any panel that starts out with Molly Lewis performing the theme song from the top of her show, and then forgetting the lyrics, is definitely something special. The panel, “You Wrote a Musical about WHAT?: Writing Niche Musical for a Niche Audience,” was all about her show, Thanksgiving Versus Christmas: A New Holiday Musical by Molly Lewis and how she and Josh Cagan wrote, created, and staged the performances at The Triple Door in Seattle. Also on the panel at

DCW Wrestlemania!

DCW Wrestlemania!

By

An annual event at Dragon Con, DCW Wrestling is a raucous, rowdy, wild show. Independent wrestlers from all over the country meet here to entertain a thrilled and very involved audience. The Centennial II–III ballroom (Hyatt) was transformed into a wrestling venue with a ring surrounded by chairs. The room was nearly full to capacity, with the largest crowd DCW has ever had. The event moved to Thursday for the first time this year and it obviously did not dampen
