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.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Wylie establishes himself as a master at milking laughs.” --LA Weekly
- “The hype doesn’t even begin to cover this show! Creative, funny, insightful. Lyla is intelligent, witty, and played with such abandon that you cannot help but fall in love with her.” --examiner.com
- “There’s a sweetness to this piece that distinguishes it from so many 'drag' shows that revel in camp and cattiness. Wylie inhabits this lady of the towering roller-curled red hair with nary a wink about gender—Lyla is all woman and refreshingly positive.” --WSWS.com
Texas Loves Lyla! gets extended, again at Theatre Asylum, after a successful run at the Hollywood Fringe and Best Of. As south Texas' #1 talk radio queen, Lyla KaRug hits the web, tackling ignorance, adult bullies, and gay teen suicide. Jeffrey Wylie takes an irreverent and bold approach in addressing the reasons why people bully, and what we can each do in helping the victims of this terrible epidemic. Co-produced with Matthew Quinn and Combined Artform.
