Margo was a mentor to playwrights William Inge, Horton Foote, Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, as well as Tennessee Williams, whose The Glass Menagerie she co-directed in its first Broadway production.

Without Jones's vision and energy, regional theater might not be as thriving as it is today. From her first theater in Dallas in 1947, to her tragic death in 1955, Jones worked feverishly to create a national, not solely New York-based, theater. Her inspiration empowered the next generation of theater directors, who successfully nurtured regional theater. Jones's enthusiasm for new plays and her willingness to work extensively with such budding playwrights as Tennessee Williams, William Inge, and Horton Foote, forever changed the face of American theater. Williams figures prominently, and we are given a rare and penetrating glimpse into the working relationship between the young Williams and Jones. From Jones's birth to death, this well-researched, carefully chronicled work captures the excitement of this period in American theater history. For theater collections.
