Dorothy Donnelly (1880-1928) served the American stage in every capacity: actor, director, producer, playwright, librettist, and benefactor. Her characterization in the roles of Candida and Madame X are still models for training actors, and her talents behind the scenes contributed to the development of the musical as a pre-eminent form of American theatre in, and after, the 1920s. This is both a comprehensive biography and the story of an important era in American stage history.
