Margo Jones

Founded in 2009, TheaterJones seeks to fill the void in arts coverage left by the diminishing print media, and to expand coverage of the performing arts on the Web. Our goal as journalists and critics is to cover the North Texas performing arts scene—theater, dance, classical music, opera, comedy and related media—as thoroughly and with as much energy, integrity, attitude and enthusiasm as mainstream broadcast and print media cover sports and politics.

We do this through reviews, features, news, essays, video, photography and opinion on a visually stimulating, clean and easily navigable website. In doing so, we provide a platform for arts journalists and critics to practice the craft of writing. Additionally, our site includes searchable event listings as a service to the arts community and to the arts-going consumer.

Our inspiration is theater legend Margo Jones (pictured), who helped start the regional theater movement in Dallas in the 1940s. Jones also inspired hundreds of professional regional theaters across the country. Read more about her in this Handbook of Texas Online bio, written by Helen Sheehy, author of the highly recommended biography Margo: The Life and Theatre of Margo Jones. You can also learn more about her from the KERA-produced documentary Sweet Tornado: Margo Jones and the American Theater.

We're always looking for ways to improve our product, so contact us if you have suggestions or thoughts. We are always looking for talented, knowledgeable writers who love the arts. If you're interested in joining our team, contact editor Mark Lowry (see email below). is a division of Metropolitan Arts Media, a 501(c)(3) organization.


Our review policy: We review professional and semi-pro performing arts events in North Texas, and while we don't make a habit of reviewing community theater and amateur performances, we will consider non-professional productions on a case-by-case basis. Also, we generally don't review musical theater performances that do not use live music.
