The Pavilion – Malibu Playhouse

The Pavilion

"Lott has a virtuosic gift for slipping, without the benefit of costume changes, into and out of characters of either gender. He conveys innumerable voices and idiosyncrasies, from the stoner mayor to the reunion's peppy, tightly wound organizer."
-LA Times

"Lott is outstanding as the Narrator. He demonstrates quiet omniscience when ruminating philosophically, and his animated impersonations of the various classmates are dazzling."
-Malibu Times

Wonderful Life – Malibu Playhouse

Wonderful Life

"With a minimal set, simple lighting and only the sheer power of his acting prowess, Jason Lott manages somehow to suspend all reality, and, as the very best theatre always does, to captivate us so completely that we hold our breath and believe."

39 Steps – Olney Theatre Center

The 39 Steps

“Lott and Casey are both superb…”
-DC Theatre Scene

“Lott is the master of facial expressions. His wide eyes and vast range of emotions make his silent scenes wildly entertaining. Lott’s physical presence on stage is powerful, whether he’s the haughty wife of the main villain, or the overbearing Scottish innkeeper’s wife. He masters the element of comedy in this show and is a phenomenal performer.”
-DC Metro Theater Arts

Wonderful Life – The Hub Theatre

Wonderful Life

“The actor knows his characters well and paints them with a single stroke. There are no costume changes. Lott achieves separation through pacing, voice, gesture, a turn of a collar and expression. And there is not a moment when you do not immediately know which character he is.”
-DC Theatre Scene

“A lively and appealing actor…”
-Washington Post

“You will be mesmerized and touched by Jason’s heart-warming performance of George Bailey, and fascinated by how talented Mr. Lott is and you will be entertained by the wonderful characters he portrays. If you loved Jimmy Stewart’s performance in the film, you will adore Jason Lott’s heart-warming performance here.”
-MD Theatre Guide

The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful (and Her Dog!) – The Kennedy Center

Dr. Wonderful

“Jason Lott is a standout as the extroverted mutt.”
-DC Theatre Scene

“Lott is hilarious as a smart-alecky pooch who would prefer to be playing with his Xbox but who settles for saving the world and learning astrophysics.”
-Washington Post

“The children respond well to the exaggerated movements of the actors, especially those of Jason Lott, who successfully hones the sprightly and agile behavior of a dog.”
-MD Theatre Guide

The Pavilion – The Hub Theatre

The Pavilion

“…actor Jason Lott handles the task with wit and flair.  There he is as Pudge, the suicide-hotline pro, with stooped posture and a cackling laugh; minutes later, he’s wriggling his hips as the gung-ho reunion coordinator, Lisa; then he’s standing poker-straight as the cynical minister Smoke, with half-close eyelids and a martyred expression.  The actor also does a graceful job delivering the rhapsodically poetic speeches of the Narrator himself, which place the reunion itself in cosmic perspective.”
– Washington Post

“[Jason Lott’s] skill is impressive . . . as he flits from persona to persona. As the evening progresses, his work becomes more ingratiating and intriguing until, under a canopy of stars which he calls forth as a kind of stage manager reminiscent of Our Town, he draws the evening to a close.”
– Potomac Stages

Theories of the Sun – Longacre Lea Productions

Theories of the Sun

“Jason Lott’s ‘Doctor’ is the main levity of the evening.  He is a hoot as he prods and probes, sniffs and grimaces.  As he noses a small vial of urine to see what he can learn, he is either the greatest scientist or the most perverted.”
– Potomac Stages

“Lott is particularly notable as the Clouseauvian Dr. Giraud, whose accent and gestures recall the great Peter Sellers, but who nonetheless creates a completely original persona on stage.”
– DC Theatre Scene

This Perfect World – Charter Theater

This Perfect World

“Jason Lott pulls off a one-man tour de force as Alan Anton, the main character and narrator.”
-The Examiner

“As for Lott, . . . with this play he solidifies his reputation as an actor who can carry a show by himself.  Lott’s Alan Anton is Everyman, if Everyman had a large poisonous snake in the corner of the room that he thinks is asleep but isn’t quite sure about.”
– DC Theatre Scene

The Internationalist – The Studio Theatre

The Internationalist

“The supporting cast – … Jason Lott as its least-secure English-speaker… – would deserve high marks simply for memorizing the astonishing chunks of gibberish they must spew with such emphatic meaning. But they’re also deft physical comics; Lott has a gambit with a martini olive… that garners explosive laughs without any linguistic assist.
– Washington City Paper

Much Ado About Nothing – Everyman Theatre

Much Ado About Nothing

“Their leader, the deliciously low and nasty Don John (played with gleefully evil panache by Jason Lott)…

“Jason Lott is like an Iago-in-training as Don John…”
-The Baltimore Sun

The Hothouse – Longacre Lea Productions

The Hothouse

“Delivered with polish and panache by an absolutely superb cast … including well known actor Jason Lott.”
-Potomac Stages

“All of the actors do first-rate turns, especially …Jason Lott.”
-The Examiner

Valparaiso – Forum Theatre


“One of the show’s first sparks comes as Majeski – played by Jason Lott like an anxious creature whose antennae sense everything – subtly starts wooing the camera. …As Majeski, Lott compellingly goes from weirded-out Everyman to canny performer, his face furrowing in confusion over the few flickers at depth – hints of recent family disaster – that Majeski dangles now and then.”
– Washington Post

“The resulting straight-backed formality in every character’s bearing enlarges nicely on DeLillo’s themes: Majeski has practiced his story so often it has hardened into a shell around him (as does Lott’s demeanor, and watching this subtle change is one of this production’s joys).”
– Washington City Paper

In On It – Theater Alliance

In On It

“You settle in to the game and the nuances of the increasingly vivid central relationship, thanks in no small measure to the nimble, unforced playing of Jason Lott (as the slightly dour This One)…”
– Washington Post

“The very good news of this production is the emergence of Jason Lott as a first-class actor. Lott …comes into his own in a lengthy, powerful role as the playwright and several of his inventions. He is wonderfully specific about his central character, who is an imperfect but basically decent man, and he moves into his secondary characters effectively and with dispatch …doing so honestly, without archness or artifice.”
– DC Theatre Scene

“In On It soars … terrifically acted by Jason Lott and Jason Stiles …Throughout the 70-minute two-hander, Lott and Stiles render alternately comic and poignant portraits of the women, sons and lovers who people MacIvor’s world.”
– Washington Blade

Upshot – Forum Theatre


“Jason Lott’s portrayal of “Man” is fantastic. The opening dialog telling his story as the last human left alive is eerie and his revelation that everyone died, ‘even you,’ left a knot in my throat.”
-DC Theatre Reviews

“Lott flings himself into the role with such gusto and agility that the narrative acquires a suspenseful urgency. The actor clambers over the pedestal-like cubes that stand about the stage; he stares dazedly into space, face wracked by the sights of the apocalypse; he arcs himself into an agonized backbend that would do credit to Mary Lou Retton.”
-Washington Post

Gross Indecency – Theater Alliance

Gross Indecency

“Jason Lott is impressive as a coarse young man who turns on Wilde on the witness stand…”
-Washington Post

Merlin and the Cave of Dreams – Imagination Stage

Merlin and the Cave of Dreams

“Merlin (a dynamic Jason Lott) challenges the boy to visit a supernatural realm…”
– The Washington Post

Painted Alice – Theater Alliance

Painted Alice

“Jason Lott is a hoot as a power-crazed hick doing museum-guard duty, a disillusioned back-to-basics sculptor who’s gotten exactly what he wanted, and a shrilly self-confident painter whose voice could etch glass.”
– Washington City Paper

Ubu Roi – Rorschach Theatre Company

“… The cast is brilliantly versatile, often just brilliant, especially Lott as (a) a Reagan-mimicking Venceslas; (b) an invading czar played by Bill Clinton, complete with a Russian fur hat that looks disturbingly like Slick Willie’s actual hair; (c) a slinky mermaid who entices sailors to their deaths; and (d) about 25 other people, who die in various horrible ways.”
– Washington City Paper

The Andersonville Trial – American Century Theater Company

“Jason Lott must be singled out for his performance of James H. Davidson, a witness so haunted by the war and his experience as a prisoner at Andersonville that he nearly disintegrates under aggressive questioning by prosecutor Chipman.”
– Special to The Washington Post
