    A fascinating history of a powerful business woman who made some incredible contributions, but was burned out of history. Well done.

    Fascinating and touching story of the genesis of Seattle, and the big hearted woman who helped in the founding of Seattle. Previously lost to history, this engaging story needs to be told.

    A fast placed blend of historical fact, comedy, and feminism, Madam(e) tells the wonderful and weird story of Madam Lou Graham and the "seamstresses" of Seattle. The rich history of Seattle plays out from the untold angle of a progressive brothel. Amusing, touching, and also significant, the story of Lou Graham is too good to be lost to history.
