“WHY CAN’T I BE YOU?” – PRODUCED, PLAYERS CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS:
“A darkly comic meditation on America’s love/hate relationship with fame. This is the theater of interrogation and confession. John Patrick Shanley. “Doubt” comes to mind. And the “Degree Absolute” episode of “The Prisoner” TV show from the 1960s. Jeff Dillon’s direction nicely captures the script’s Spanish Inquisition rhythms.” – Marty Fugate, THE OBSERVER
“MACHIAVELLI’S HANDBAG” – PRODUCED, GARDNER STAGES, HOLLYWOOD, Ca:
“Jones displays a sly wit and unleashes scenes of emotional ferocity” – Paul Cohen, LA WEEKLY
“LOVER” – PRODUCED, THE ACTOR’S LAB, LOS ANGELES:
“Jones’ morality play on the evils of sex, drugs and greed has a captivating, noir style.” – Martin Hernandez, LA WEEKLY.
“BLACKOUT” – PRODUCED, THE SUNCOAST THEATER, SAINT PETERSBURG:
“There’s something intriguing, at times fascinating about Jones’ script.” – Jay Handleman, HERALD TRIBUNE.
“THAT WASN’T ME” – PRODUCED, THE PLAYERS CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS:
“Jones storytelling strategy reminds me of another Jones — James Jones, the author of “From Here to Eternity.” As you’ll recall, that other author involved you in various tangled storylines on Pearl Harbor — then suddenly interrupted them with the Japanese attack. It is a surreal, dreamlike moment.” – Marty Fugate, THE OBSERVER.
