“Something Wicked This Way Comes” is one night only at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey on October 28. The evening of chilling and spooky tales by a company of actors is accompanied by theremin music, sound effects, and staging, making it a Halloween season favorite with audiences.  This year, actor Ames Adamson gives the Jersey Arts Podcast a special preview with a full performance of Edgar Allan Poe’s very brief, very creepy classic, “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Producer Susan Wallner starts by asking director Brian Crowe to describe what makes the evening so special.Something Wicked features Ames Adamson (in the background) and Derek Wilson (in the foreground).
