Margo Jones (December 12, 1911 – July 26, 1955) was an influential American stage director and producer best known for launching the American regional theater movement and for introducing the theater-in-the-round concept in Dallas, Texas. In 1947, she established the first regional professional company when she opened Theatre ’47 in Dallas. Of the 85 plays Jones staged during her Dallas career, 57 were new, and one-third of those new plays had a continued life on stage, television and radio.
Famous quotes containing the word jones:
“There used to be two kinds of kisses. First when girls were kissed and deserted; second, when they were engaged. Now theres a third kind, where the man is kissed and deserted. If Mr. Jones of the nineties bragged hed kissed a girl, everyone knew he was through with her. If Mr. Jones of 1919 brags the same everyone knows its because he cant kiss her any more. Given a decent start any girl can beat a man nowadays.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
