I've only had the opportunity to work with Ozzie in the full sense, once. The African Continuum Theater Company and Arena Stage were producing a staged reading of one of his latest plays, Kind of Blue, and I was there to direct. The piece itself was beautifully written, intelligent, and resonated with an authenticity that is hard to locate these days.

Mr. Jones allowed me to "play" with the actors by really allowing my own interpretation of the text to shine through. He was trusting. It was a great opportunity, as a director, to have such enormous language to work with, but an even better opportunity to work without being disrupted by the writer's 'my way only' vision or bias.

I have since then, actively started following his work in the schools, community etc. I'm impressed by his audacity, we need as much of it in the world as possible.

Ozzie Jones is a true professional, excellent performer, amazing lyricist and an all around good person. I met Ozzie about 14/15 years when I started with working with Rennie Harris in the production of Rome & Jewels at Bates College. He was one of the creative and artistic directors in the creation of Rome & Jewels. As toured with Ozzie I got to know him as a performer and a musician (I still need another NAME full length CD) and not many can do it like him. He is one of the few that I know who has been able to keep his identity and crafts fresh and truely captivating without watering it down and selling out. Hollywood producers if you ever doing another boxing film look for this guy. He's got hand skills to that can pay some bills. His reach is long enough to where I even had trouble working Cus D'Amato's Peek A Boo Style against him.

I met Ozzie two years ago while directing my first production in my life. He showed me the light. He taught me how to keep a balance between providing structure for production members while remembering that they are just as important to the production as I am.

He was an awesome mentor in my creative process and gave advice whenever he could. I would send him videos of rehearsals, he would review the material (even though he would be super busy) and became a guiding hand.

As an artist, Ozzie understands the value of feedback and mentorship in the art industry. He continues to touch base with me all the way up until now, two years post my first production. He stands out from other professionals in the style of humbling himself and being honest with himself and others at all times.

I have known Mr. Ozzie Jones for twenty-four years. A fellow graduate of
Bates College, we met at the school when I was an admissions counselor and he was a student. One of the qualities that I have always admired in his work as a musician, actor, and director, is his willingness to take creative risks and push boundaries that effectively challenge the conventional thinking of his audiences. Today, I am even more impressed with his dedication as a teacher and a mentor who continuously shares his abundant creative gifts and time with the young people of his community. By supporting Ozzie’s efforts, you are directly helping to empower, educate and inspire a new generation of artists to develop their gifts with skill, boldness, and integrity.See MoreRead Less"

Ozzie Jones was essential in casting the lead role for my film, "I am John Wayne". I was looking for a particularly difficult role to cast, and had a specific kind of young actor in mind. I had tried multiple casting options but failed to find my lead. What I was looking for was authenticity. Ozzie immediately understood what I was looking for and had referred a former student he had taught to me. The young actor had raw talent and was perfect for the role. The fact that he was trained by Ozzie made my job as a director that much easier, since he already had the tools he needed to play the part brilliantly. Ozzie is the multi-talented artist you want to bring the best out of your project or actor.See MoreRead Less"

Ozzie Jones has a masterfully creative mind that is never at rest. I could attempt to list his projects, but the truth is that they are inter-connected, strengthening each other, and tangled in a way that makes you question where one piece ends and the next begins. As long as I have know Ozzie, he has been passionately involved in something art-driven, and putting 100% of himself towards it. Kids love him, his charisma, his approachability, and his willingness to listen to their ideas, and take them seriously. Adults wish they had as much energy as he does. Ozzie is a unique force, and though it may be a force for the unexpected, it is a vibrant and positive one that should never be stifled.See MoreRead Less"

Ozzie Jones is a very talented Director and performance artist in his own right. I have known Ozzie for over 20 years and watched as his career and artistic expression have grown and blossomed as he took on various avenues of expression, whether performing, directing or as a writer. His commitment to truth telling through his art has remained solid and consistent. He consistently has used the various opportunities and platforms of past experience to enrich his audience's lives and to assist other artists in their self expression. He is an asset to any venture for which he might be considered.See MoreRead Less"

I've followed the career of Ozzie Jones for well over a decade now and know him to be one of the most exceptional artistic directors I've ever had the pleasure to work with. An award winning Director of theater and a loving father and husband, he is insightful and thorough in his craft and there are few that I've worked with that are comparable with him.

As a professional actor and a decade plus senior to Mr. Jones, our relationship began as actor and director. As an actor I had been impressed with Mr. Jones work with Freedom Theatre , Arden Theatre company and later when we were both members of Venture Theatre company. As a actor auditioning for Mr. Jones, I felt comfortable and willing to extend myself to his vision. Mr. Jones also helped me discover my passion for directing., which has become my current quest as an Artist!!See MoreRead Less"

I've known Ozzie Jones for many years now and I have worked with him on several occassions. Every time this has happened I have grown as both an artist and as a person. Although he is vastly talented and creative he is also humble and straight forward. His critical opinions are well thought out and communicated and his direction on stage is flawless. He directed my one man show at the Walt Whitman Cultural center in 2003 and several other performances I have participated in.See MoreRead Less"

I met Ozzie at Chez La Belle. I was "raw". I didn't know anything..I mean I didn't even know what blocking is. He saw something in me & he pulled it out & taught me the finer points of acting. I have never forgotten what he taught me. He also helped me prepare for auditioning for the role of Eddie Carbone, in A View From The Bridge. I got the role & did very well.
He is the "best". God bless you, Ozzie. I will never forget you.

Ozzie directed me in two productions. He was relentless. He cared about each and everyone of us, and made us work above and beyond his potential--not only that, he challenged us as actors to push each other to our limits and then go further. I bring many of the lessons I learned from Ozzie into my classrooms and rehearsals. Ozzie was Ozzie. He didn't care about fitting into the realm of the standard. He challenged and redefined the standard.See MoreRead Less"

I worked with Ozzie when we each directed programs at the Walt Whitman Arts Center in Camden. He was always willing to explore how his area (drama) and mine (folklore and folklife) could come together and share common ground. He's intellectually curious and thoughtful and has a great way with words and movement. I saw him teaching drama classes and directing onstage several times, and it was impressive! I'd definitely recommend his classes.See MoreRead Less"

Directed me once as a replacement actor for a travelling African American history show for Freedom Theater. The rehearsal time was short and he was full of encouragement throughout the process.

The relationship has grown from that experience and what I found out about Ozzie : He's dynamic , he invents ,takes risks, for the arts qualities required for an inspiring Artistic Director.See MoreRead Less"

Ozzie has his finger on the pulse of a new method. Much like Stanislivasky did with the group school, Ozzie's method's of achieving absorption, connectivity, and personalization have the potential to change theater as we know it. It is a new paradigm. I'm proud to have been a part of its formation and I'm excited to be involved in its future.
