Say Something Good About Detroit

Edmund Alyn Jones was a first year graduate student at the Hilberry Theater when he knocked people's socks off playing RICHARD III. Since then we have seen him play OTHELLO, and play parts memorably in other Hilberry productions of THE MOUSETRAP, OF MICE AND MEN, DETROIT. He is perhaps the finest actor I have seen in my thirty-some years of Hilberry attendance. You knew it the first time he walked on the stage. And he is one of the only young actors I have seen who can play an older man persuasively.

I am so hopeful Mr. Jones will make his way onto bigger stages. I wish him well. He has given me much pleasure.

I'm happy for him too, Patti. So nice when a 'local boy makes good' if he is that talented.
