Tamburlaine – A Broadway Revival
“Two Knockers Up!” ~Rusty Warren, comedienne
Chris Marlowe, a drag queen of a certain age, has kept the failing, New York City show bar, Tamburlaine, open because of a long-ago made promise. When a young man enters her life, Chris reconnects with the world and everything changes. The bar once again enjoys success, crowds flood to Tamburlaine for the gender-bending shows directed by The Great Jericho Taylor, and Chris’s impersonations of the famed comedienne, Rusty Warren are once again loved by audiences. So, why is someone trying to kill Christopher Marlowe—again and again?
“Kompes writes in a confident, playful prose that perfectly captures Chris’ snarky worldview…. A colorful, surprising novel about an over-the-hill artist grappling with times gone by.” ~Kirkus Reviews
