RE: Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike (Half Moon Theatre Company)
The standout performance is by Samantha Jones as the unappreciated and often overlooked adopted sister, Sonia. Jones maneuvers through the hairpin turns of Sonia’s moods with a comedic timing that gives honesty to a character who could have come off as absurd. Yet, as much as we laugh at her, we almost cry when she reaches the heart-warming moment of getting the last thing she felt she would: acknowledgment. Jones brings an inner life to her character that would have made Chekov proud. Full Article
Marc Schroeder - THE POUGHKEEPSIE JOURNAL
Samantha Jones takes on the role of Sonia. With a background in improv, Jones brings to the role an exquisite timing. At the end of the first act she comes alive and doesn’t really slow down
from that point forward. Her Maggie Smith impression from “California Suite” nearly brings the house down. She’s simply terrific.
Jim Donick - THE NORTHERN/SOUTHERN DUCHESS NEWS
Sonia decides that she’s not going anywhere dressed as Dopey to accommodate Masha. Instead, she glams up as the Wicked Queen, unexpectedly becoming the life of the party with her spot-on impersonations of Maggie Smith in California Suite. A gifted comedienne, Jones really shines in this transformation, and also aces the difficult thespian challenge of conveying a spectrum of emotions via one side of a phone call.

RE: PIT by Melisa Annis (Theatre for the New City)
Samantha Jones is the undeniable anchor of this cast. As Val, Jones is a maternal force in the town, and her passion for the cause is almost religious. Jones doesn’t allow her character to be a result of the strife; she instead tirelessly rises above the heartache. Whether making sandwiches, working the picket line, or doing anything in her power to keep her husband fed, Jones could have easily portrayed a victim. She instead exposes a champion. Full Article

Sam Jones hilariously deconstructed Easter, dissed Tower Air, and bashed Los Angeles.
Michele Portantiere - In Theatre Magazine
Samantha did a piece about getting her doll admitted to the fancy grammar school. She insisted the doll was her daughter. Very, very mad and hilarious. Such a wild concept. I fricking loved it. The portrayal of this woman was super crazy. Great stuff. Well done.
