Event

My Life in 3 Easy Payments, feat. performance artist Dale Guy Madison
Dale Guy Madison is an award-winning educator, LGBTQ activist, playwright, author, filmmaker, performance artist and doll collector. He knows how to show and sell, as one of the first African-American hosts of QVC, and the first to produce the African Marketplace shopping hour on the popular shopping network. And he brings all his life experiences to his hit one-man show, "My Life in 3 Easy Payments," introducing audiences to his drag persona FREEda SLAVE, which he created for his bit part in the hilarious 1995 comedy, "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar," starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo.

Inspired by iconic movies like "Sunset Boulevard," "Valley of the Dolls" and "All About Eve," Madison explores the quest of fame by looking at the pop culture phenomenon of reality shows and the famous faces they instantly create. By sharing his first taste of fame as a QVC host, Madison takes us down memory lane, offering humorous commentary on the quest of fame and the addiction to reclaim it through spoken word, music, storytelling and archival footage. Of course, the title of the play borrows from QVCs sales option of easy pay, in which shoppers can buy products, and spread payments over three months.

Written by Madison and directed by Malik Shakur, the one-man show is based on his memoir, "Dreamboy: My Life As a QVC Host & Other Greatest Hits." He begs the questions: What are the real costs of fame?  And do we have to sell our souls to gain commercial acceptance? Being the skilled salesman that he is, Madison peddles his message to the audience like a sweet deal of the day with three easy payments. Beware: if you're buying what he's selling, there are no refunds!

"My Life in 3 Easy Payments" is produced by DamnGoodMan Productions.
