What a thrill to see my heroes Bradley Bobbs & Alayha Aquarian in their brilliant World Premiere of Poe-etic License. Bradley’s passionate delivery of Poe’s work - The Bells and The Raven - was literally breathtaking (you could hear a pin drop in the audience) and worth the price of admission alone. Music Director Paul Zullo’s contribution was a perfect addition to the proceedings. BRAVO!... full review

I really liked the mesh of a living Edgar Allen Poe anacrhonized to todays elements of a goth band who plays Dylan tunes and an interpretive dancer in the mix. Very creative and the name itself POE-tic License is so appropriate! THEATRE ASYLUM JUDGE... full review

Dr. Bradley Bobbs performance was just mesmerizing! I was captivated from the very start. He is Poe and he puts every word to life! He is worthy to take this to a higher level and go on tour! It was dramatic, funny, and fun. The music was surprising and clever. The Dancing that Alayha performed was beautiful and her costumes were divine! I even got to dance with her on stage as the Raven. Very original and genius! I would recommend this to everyone! I loved it!... full review

Edgar Allen Poe and Bob Dylan Mashed Up @ Hollywood Fringe Festival. By Dana Benson, Discover Hollywood Magazine I was fortunate to experience a unique theatrical performance at the Fringe Festival on June 20. Mad scientist/practicing laser physicist Dr. Bradley Bobbs acted out a witty, comic, and musical interpretation of Edgar Allen Poe’s poetry entitled “Poe-Etic License.” Musical director Daniel Collins, producer-chanteuse Alaya Aquarian, stage manager Pam Noles, and musicians Dr. Robert Strong, Jon Ward, Janet Housden, and E-Roy Hilligros assisted. The play featured an artful weaving of Bob Dylan’s musical poetry into the fabric of Poe’s work, in addition to “straight” recitations of Poe’s “The Bells” and “The Raven.” Bobbs, ... full review

This show is a lively, freeing experience that feels unpredictable. Funny, gut-wrenching, awe-inspiring - the poems are classic and the parody is sublime. The music is pure treasure and the raven's dance - a dream with some unexpected elements! ... full review
