Saw Bradley Bobbs’ HFF offering: “Poe-Etic License”. Critique: I wish there was more of it. Spoiler: This is not a one man show. It’s produced by the Aquarian Family Circus.

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

Bradley Bobbs IS Edgar Allan Poe! This show brought the poet back to life. Bobbs made him relevant, engaging, hilarious. The creative mash-up that connects Poe and Bob Dylan is truly something to behold. This show is highly recommended.... full review

An original performance piece capturing the works on Edgar Allan Poe (from his most famous work "The Raven" to lesser known ones). Complete with various forms of music (a Bob Dylan song performed in the style of Poe, an autobiographical song about Poe sung in a Dylan-esque voice), and a funky dance... I'd say it's an experimental, interpretive Fringe show.... full review

Bradley Bobbs brings Poe to life, in all his disturbing glory! I've read Poe's poetry, but Poe-Etic License has added a new dimension. Bobbs, along with Alayha Aquarian, Catherine Allison, and Paul Zollo offer glimpses into the darkness of E.A. Poe's internal world and tragic end. ... full review
JUSTEEN WARD certified reviewer June 23, 2023
"Poe-etic License" was a perfect play for Hollywood Fringe. It was very entertaining, with spoken word poetry, original music, dance and puppetry. Bradley Bobbs personifies Edgar Allen Poe with Poe's work as well as a mash up of Bob Dylan's poetry from the twentieth century. Paul Zollo's original music was very well done and Alayha Aquarius is a wonderful clown presence. This unusual theatrical experience is one of the things we really like about Hollywood Fringe. ... full review
