Anthony Dodge & Marcia Milgrom Dodge began writing together in 1998, shortly after journeying to Russia to adopt their sweet daughter Natasha.
They first adapted Nicholas Meyer's novel The West End Horror for the stage. Sherlock Holmes & The West End Horror premiered at the Bay Street Theatre in 2002. It received a prestigious Edgar Award nomination from the Mystery Writers of America and was subsequently produced regionally at the Asolo Theatre and the Pioneer Theatre, directed by Marcia. It is available for licensing through Playscripts, Inc.
They were then commissioned to create a book for a musical with an existing score. This property has since undergone revision and is now Look Homeward Honky Tonk Angel, with a score by country music legend Larry Gatlin. The world premiere was at Lyric Stage in Irving, TX in 2007 under Marcia's direction.
Hats! A Musical for The Rest Of Your Life was developed from the Red Hat Society's mission of "fun and friendship after fifty." The musical, featuring an original book by the Dodges and songs by a collection of Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning songwriters, opened in Denver in 2006 under the direction of acclaimed Broadway choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett. After productions in Chicago, Las Vegas and many regional theatres across the USA, it is now available for licensing through Samuel French.
Their original play called Venus Flytrap A Femme Noir Mystery explores sexual politics against the background of 1943 New York City and their newest play, inspired by a trip to Alcatraz Island in 2006, is called Free Burt Lancaster!
Originally from Detroit, Tony and Marcia reside in NYC and have been married since 1980 (and they said it would never last!) When not writing together, Tony happily spoils Natasha while Marcia continues her busy directing and choreographing career.
