Marcia Milgrom Dodge wants to take her choreography skills to
Broadway and beyond.

Aggressiveness Helps
Choreography Career

VICTORIA BELYEU DIAZ

Special to The Jewish News

I

'm sort of a pushy
broad," confesses ex-De-
troiter, Marcia Milgrom
Dodge, in town this month to
choreograph Stephen - Son-
dheim's Company, at the Bir-
mingham Theater. The show
runs through March 19.
Though the University of
Michigan alum, 33, laughs
when she makes the confes-
sion, it's apparent she
sincerely believes there's
nothing like a healthy dollop
of aggressiveness to help
along a career in show
business.
From the looks of things,
she's on the right track.
In addition to Company (the
first professional production
she's worked on in the Detroit
-area), she's racked up im-
pressive credits in such shows
as The Music Man at New
York's Lincoln Center
(choreographing 80 people,
plus one horse!), Sullivan and
Gilbert at the Kennedy
Center in Washington, D.C.,
and She Loves Me at
Baltimore's Center Stage.
The vivacious blonde is not
about to relax, though, and
acts as if she'd rather sit on a
bed of nails than rest upon a
single laurel. She describes
her career — something she's

prepared for since the days
she studied dance at Julie
Adler's School of Dance in
Oak Park — as "always a
struggle."
When she first went to New
York in 1977, just out of col-
lege, she conducted what she
calls a "relentless" letter-and-
resume campaign, directed
toward dozens of New York
theatrical directors and
choreographers.
"I'd get all these theater
directories and I'd send out all
these resumes, telling them
I'd done all these shows at
Michigan. And I never heard
from 99 percent of the people
I wrote to. Oh, once in a while,
I'd get this letter saying,
`We're not interested? But, I
persevered. I'm insane, I
guess. I just never let up.
Never?'
In order to eat regularly
and to pay the rent on a tiny,
sub-let apartment, Dodge
waited tables at various
restaurants, sold make-up at
Bloomingdale's and worked at
a Manhattan discount store.
It would be nearly three
years before a door opened.
Paradoxically, the break,
when It came, was not from
New York, but from Ann Ar-
bor, where a director she'd
worked with during her col-
lege years called and asked if
she'd be interested in
