"...In general, the production is at its best when exploring Poe’s better-known works. “The Tell-Tale Heart,” for example, is performed especially well, with Austyn Williamson’s narration steadily building to a point of madness. Other offerings, however, deviate greatly from the source material to the point where they appear curiously detached from their creator. I also question the wisdom of bringing so many of his stories to stage in one sitting as they appear a bit uneven in their delivery, with “The Fall of the House of Usher” especially a bit long in the tooth."

Chicago Theatre Review- Somewhat Recommended

"...Still, like I said, the acting is good and the stories themselves are obviously classics. And while the framing device didn’t connect for me the way I would have wanted it to, at its core, the show is still a good staging of some classic horror stories."
