Donnelly, Dorothy


Donnelly, Dorothy
(1880-1928)
   The actress-playwright was born into a theatrical family in New York City. She acted in her brother's Murray Hill stock company for three years, followed by 20 years of good roles in New York, including the title role in Madame X (1909). However, she soon devoted herself more to writing librettos as well as song lyrics. She worked with Sigmund Romberg on the adaptations and lyrics for the operettas Blossom Time (1921) and The Student Prince (1924).
