Early life and education[edit] Jones was born in Paris, Tennessee. Her mother was a high school teacher and her father owned a flower shop.[1] Her parents were very supportive of her theatrical ambitions, encouraging her interest by sending her to classes with local drama teacher, Ruby Krider. [2] Jones takes great pains to credit her high school speech teacher, Linda Wilson, with her first real preparatory work.[3] She is a 1978 graduate of the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. While at CMU, she was one of the earliest actors to work at City Theatre, a prominent fixture of Pittsburgh theatre.[4] Career[edit] Most of her career has been in the theatre. Her Broadway performances include Lincoln Center's 1995 production of The Heiress, and also a 2005 production of John Patrick Shanley's play Doubt at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
