    What a gladsome and engaging read on the journey of Marjorie Johnson. I personally know Marjorie as a good friend and fellow thespian. She is caring, highly skilled, humble and creative. She has a deep respect for acting and also for those around her. I am thrilled you put her in the spotlight. She deserves this special attention. Thank you ROUTES Magazine and to you Perri Gaffney. – This story is about Love and Marjorie’s Dream. Beautiful!

  9. In addition, Marjorie worked with David Pendleton’s The Performers Seminar Workshop where she also was awarded an AUDELCO for her performance in Richard Wesley’s THE SIRENS performed by The PSW Players. I have known Marjorie over the years as devoted to her art and integrity and dedicated to The Process. Her recognition is well deserved – and about time!

  10. Thank you Perri for capturing my sister Marjorie Johnson’s successful journey on the stage and screen with such vibrancy. The article conveys both her personal courage, vision and willingness to embrance new challenges, along with the historical barriers of racism and discrmination she had to overcome. Her humour and good grace are well illustrated. She has spent a lifetime honing and perfecting her craft. She has always been gracious when others who were less talented found success and financial gain. The recogntion she has enjoyed with Dot is long overdue. I hope it is a gateway to greater opportunity and reward.

  11. Beautiful to know the back story of our talented Majorie Johnson! And she has a beautiful spirit to match!

  12. My good friend Marjorie Johnson, introduced me to ROUTES magazine. Thank you girl! Great informative articles that keep me in loop with my people. I live in LA, but I’m hoping for a broadway production of DOT. I will be on the next plane when that happens.

  13. Great article Perri you are a true treasure as well as Marjorie (Starjorie) Johnson. She has ALWAYS been phenomenal. I am so glad more people are getting a chance to witness her brilliance. She is definitely a bright star and a beautiful person.

  14. OMG! I knew that I knew Marjorie from almost 40 years ago, wracking my brain trying to pin down from where. I distinctly remember her sweetness, and appearance of innocence only to find that she was funny and bold. Did we attend junior high together? Or NYU School of the Arts? After googling her name to solve the mystery I found this article. Voila! Mystery solved! It was the acting workshop at NBT! Whew! Now I can rest my brain.

    Congrats lady! She is so deserving. I will be cheering her on at the AUDELCO Awards.
