|Praise for Jason from the Director of the Barter Theatre
January 31st, 2012
Richard Rose, who heads one of America's most prestigious regional theatre companies at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, VA, has some great things to say about Jason Petty's 5-week performance there in 2011. Audiences were captivated by Jason's musical knowledge and his voice, as well as the true-to-life performances of the band to replicate the authentic sounds of the music from a bygone era. Barter Theatre is no small achievement for Jason, who won New York City's biggest Off-Broadway Award (The Obie, 2003) the first time he set foot in that city during his performance in "Hank Williams:Lost Highway." The Barter Theatre is widely known for its achievements in the theatrical world and is considered one of the top-performing theatres in the country. They sit right in the heart of the birthplace of country music, which makes Jason's successful run there even more special.
