    Mary Jane?

    Not sure how this would fit any of the clues except that it is a name that I can "dope out"

    -_-

    I knew I should have changed that....

    Forget "dope out"--that's a red herring....

    No....

    But you ARE on the right track as far as what "Madame" is and the fact that she's played by a he....

    But try to think about this in terms of the other clues in the riddle....

    No, I was afraid you'd take that tack....

    But while you're thinking of Miss Piggy....

    Who owns Miss Piggy?

    Am I allowed to ask, would this have to do with a Shakespeare play then? The idea that the 'she' is played by a 'he' reminded me of the old rules for stage actors. I'm probably way off though...

    No....

    I can see I'm going to have to be blunt.

    There is no "she played by a he"--it's a he with a feminine name.

    Frank Oz?

    -_-

    By the time the answer is guessed I fear it's going to be anti-climactic....

    I thought it was a good pun, but apparently I didn't give good clues....

    The second stanza is a description of the one who BEARS the name in the first....

    Are we talking about a English puppeteer with a girly name? From the riddle and the secondary clues, that's the angle I'm working....Ivor Wood? perhaps.

    Otherwise, I am so far off the trail, I should go on vacation.
    Grrr...

    You're not.

    Nothing to do with puppets, but English and girly name are right.

    I am sorely tempted to simply reveal the answer to this one and do better next time, get my head out of the clouds.

    Some other day I will.

    I thought it was an interesting idea but I failed to execute it properly.

    Oh well, I've had successes in the past, I can succeed again.

    Yeah, from the clues given, I'm not sure that answer would've been gleaned.

    But definitely do another!
