Production Description
Adapted from Donnie’s book Mr. Madam: The Life and Times of Kenneth/Kate Marlowe, the play tells the true story of often-overlooked LGBTQ+ trailblazer Kenneth Marlowe, a private hairdresser to the stars; the madam of a notorious gay prostitution ring in Hollywood; an author; a hustler; a female impersonator; a private in the U.S. Army; a call boy; a Christian missionary; a mortuary cosmetologist; and a newspaper columnist. And, in the final decade of their life, Marlowe lived as a woman, having transitioned to become Kate Marlowe.
