Following sold-out performances in Washington, D.C. the past two years, actor/writer Jason Lott brings his critically acclaimed solo show Wonderful Life to Theatre Asylum in Los Angeles. In this enchanting one-man retelling of the classic holiday film It's a Wonderful Life, Lott creates all the major characters of Bedford Falls, including George Bailey, the good family man badly in need of a Christmas miracle. Rather than mimicking the classic film version by doing impressions of Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed or Lionel Barrymore, Lott pays tribute to the original story with a fresh look at the characters and a delivery not based on the previous actors' work. Whether experiencing the story for the first time as a child or enjoying it again as part of an annual tradition, this performance of the endearing tale is sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face.

Lonesome No More! Theatre presents Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit as their first work as Artists in Residence at Theatre Asylum Lab in Hollywood.
Moments after their respective deaths, three strangers find themselves locked up in a single room in Sartre’s No Exit, faced with a maddening new world in which they can cover their eyes but never sleep. They can go to the door, but they cannot open it. There are no torture instruments, but they torment one another and a lifetime of memories haunts them all. Director Lori Petermann presents Sartre’s truly dark and surprisingly funny play through a contemporary lens that projects three characters we recognize from our own present day: a cocky businessman, a self-made socialite, and a minimum wage member of the service industry. As the action examines the choices made by each that led them to No Exit, the true existential conundrum arises: how does an individual make the correct choices that leads them to a fulfilling life – and at what cost?
Lonesome No More! Theatre is a Los Angeles-based company of creative producers and performers known for highly energetic productions boldly staged to utilize the entire theatrical space.
