"The gem of Scott Craig Jones’ portrayal of
Edgar Allan Poe is his talent for replicating the
tension Poe wove so beautifully into his poems and
stories. Jones pours his heart and soul into his craft
with the same precision as Poe, and the result is
spectacular in his dreadfully wonderful
production." – Philly2Philly.com Theater
"Jones' performance reminds us how modern and
accessible Poe is…dramatic but conversational,
eschewing a moody, Vincent Price-style delivery."—Steve
Cohen, Theater Review, The Philadelphia CityPaper 9/5/09
