Dale Guy Madison has a thing for 3. His middle name is spelled with 3 letters. He was born in the third month of the year, (March) to a family of 3 children.  He is an avid fan of the 3 girls from Detroit, The Supremes, the 3 ladies of DREAMGIRLS, and the 3 ladies of SPARKLE. 

His one-man show is called My Life in 3 Easy Payments. The title comes from the easy pay option used in the shopping world that allows you to purchase an item and have the luxury spreading your payments over 3 months.

My life in 3 Easy Payments 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. He pays homage to 3 of his favorite movies “Sunset Boulevard,” “All About Eve,” and “Valley of the Dolls.  


Valley of the Dolls

"As a young gay man," Dale says, "my besties and I would watch Valley of the Dolls over and over again. I always related to the Patty Duke character, Neeley O'Hara." 

Valley of the Dolls, a popular gay camp movie, is based on the Jacqueline Susann story that follows 3 women, Patti Duke, Barbara Parkins, and Sharon Tate, who seek fame in Hollywood and Broadway.

If you research, the number 3 is considered the perfect number; the number of harmony, wisdom, and understanding. ... It was also the number of time – past, present, future; birth, life, death; beginning, middle, end – it is the number of the divine.


3 denotes divine perfection; Hence the number three points us to what is real, essential, perfect, substantial, complete, and Divine.

From a metaphysical/spiritual standpoint, we are created in the vision of the number three, as we are made of "body, mind and spirit."

3 is the first number to which the meaning "all" was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle, and an end.
