theater in a small town in
northwest Missouri.

She was packed and ready
to go almost before the tele-
phone conversation ended.
The shows, which she
choreographed for $100 a
week, plus housing, entitled
her to join the Society of
Stage Directors and Choreog-
raphers, thus opening doors
which had been closed pre-
viously because of her non-
professional status.
Soon, she was choreogra-
phing a Florida dinner
theater production, perform-
ing in the show, and receiving
$450 a week for her efforts. (It
would be the only time she'd
dance professionally onstage.)
"I thought I had really, at
last, arrived," she says. But
when whe returned to New
York after the six-month run
of the show, no job offers were
forthcoming.
"So, I started again — sen-
ding out all these letters and
resumes. I had no agent. I was
just working on my own."
This time around, however,
the resumes, now with a bit of
professional experience listed,
evoked some positive
response and Dodge was hired
by several small New York
clubs to choreograph cabaret
theater productions. Those
led to a job at the popular
Village Gate in New York and
also, eventually, the Dodge's
first really "big break" —
choreographing She Loves Me
at Baltimore's Center Stage
Theater in 1985.
"It was very exciting,"
Dodge recalls. "I was working
in regional theater, with the
right directors, weeks of
rehearsal, wonderful actors,
people who had Broadway
credits. The artistic director
recommended me to other ar-
tist directors in regional
theater for other jobs. I did
Little Shop of Horrors in St.
Louis, and Guys and Dolls in
Springfield, Mass.
Although she did eventual-
ly acquire an agent, she ad-
mits to still spending large
chunks of her own time, pur-
suing jobs and trying to find
"as much work as possible."
What's in the future for
Marcia Milgrom Dodge?
"I want to go to Broadway,
of course. And I have dreams
about winning a Tony,
although I already have my
own Tony — my husband."
(She and actor Anthony
Dodge, also a Detroiter, were
wed in 1980.) "The thing is, I
don't want to just get to
Broadway. I want to get to
Broadway so that I can have
the credit, and then keep
working. I want to go on to
