"...There may be few surprises in this show for those familiar with Poe's life and work, but there are still plenty of delights. The universally high level of performance achieved by Schrempp's ensemble brings out the best in Poe's sometimes overwrought work. Christian Gray is especially sublime as Poe. Even when he's declaiming poetry as well known as "The Bells," he rings new sounds out of the familiar stanzas."
