Five years before playing Jan in the "Grease" movie, she played Jan in the play on Broadway. Soon after, she quit the acting business for a while and lost her contract.

Later, she was in the United States premiere of "The Rocky Horror Show" starring as Magenta and the Usherette. She appeared on stage at the Roxy theatre in Los Angeles with Tim Curry and Meat Loaf in 1974, when the show opened. She is featured on the original Roxy cast recording in her role, singing the opening song Science Fiction/Double Feature. She went with most of the Roxy cast to reprise her roles on Broadway in 1975. Several years later she was called to read for "Grease".

She was also in the original Broadway casts of "George M!" starring as Ethel Levey and "Flora the Red Menace" as the understudy to Liza Minnelli, also playing Lulu. She can be heard on the Original Cast Recordings for both of these shows.

Although not as active as an actress herself, Donnelly is now focused more on her career as a private acting coach. She has coached several up-and-coming as well as established actors, including Caitlin Wachs of "My Dog Skip" and "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood", Anthony Azizi of "Lost, and Tony Shalhoub of the TV series "Monk".
