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. 

The production features scenic design by Walt Spangler, lighting design by Jamie Roderick, sound design by Ien DeNio, costume design by Jeffrey Hinshaw, and props by Brendan McCann. Casting is by Daryl Eisenberg of Eisenberg Casting.

Visceral Entertainment is the general manager, Kasson Marroquin is the production stage manager, and Ellie Handel is the assistant stage manager.
