Jasper Welcomes Jillian Owens to the Theatre Review Team


Jillian Owens is the Refashionista and now she reviews for What Jasper Said!


As Jasper builds our blog to provide readers with up-to-date reviews of theatre and dance, we welcome Jillian Owens to the Jasper Theatre Review Team. Along with August Krickel, Jeffrey Day, Arik Bjorn, and others, Jillian will be lending her critical eye to opening nights of theatre about town and sharing her insights with you as quickly as possible so that you can make informed decisions about how to best spend your local theatre dollars.

A Columbia transplant, Jillian Owens graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BFA in Theatre and English.  She has worked in many areas of theatre, both locally and nationally, including set design, lighting design, costume design, stage/production management, and acting.

By day, Jillian works for the South Carolina Arts Commission as their Grants Manager.  By night, she writes at ReFashionista.net, her world-renowned recycled fashion blog.

Please help us welcome Jillian to the Jasper Family!

    I thoroughly enjoy your creations and I’m excited to see that you’ll be reviewing theater. I’m a full-time theater critic at Dallas Observer, reviewing several shows a week. Hope you’ll post links to your reviews. Or Tweet them. (I’m on Twitter too.) Best of luck with the reviewing gig. It’s not all “seeing shows for work.” The job is about writing an informed opinion. Break a leg!
