Johnny Dodd (John P. Dodd) was a lighting designer for theater, dance and music active in the downtown art scene in Manhattan during the last half of the 20th Century.

Career achievements

Dodd was the founder and president of 14th Street Stage Lighting Inc. in New York City. In the 1960's he was the resident lighting designer of Caffe Cino, an Off Off Broadway theater, and won an Obie Award in 1967 for three plays there: Tom Eyen's "White Whore and the Bit Player," Lanford Wilson's "Madness of Lady Bright" and Soren Agenoux's "Charles Dickens's 'Christmas Carol.' "

He also did the lighting for dance and theater productions at Judson Memorial Church and for shows at La Mama and Theater Genesis.

In 1971 he did the lighting for the Robert Wilson (director) play "Deafman's Glance" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and for the Broadway musical "Inner City." Until his illness in the late 1980's, he was the lighting director of the Living Theater.

In music, he worked for the New York Dolls rock band and created the lighting for their international tours in the late 1970's. In dance, he worked with the choreographers Dianne McIntyre, Charles Moore, Remy Charlip and Carolyn Lord.

Dodd died in 1991, reportedly from AIDS. [ [http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9D0CE4DE133DF934A25754C0A967958260] Obituaries New York Times July 17, 1991]
