THE BIRTHDAY BOYS September 2011...
"The stoic "old man," Lowell Byers...as the Bogart of the group, Gullette is often as irritated with the others as he is longing for his pregnant idealized wife...the hardboiled Gullette at first objects then shrugs his acceptance at it only to shut the kid up, because all he can think about, besides his wife back home, is how badly he needs to piss his pants, even though it would mean losing his bet to Tyler."
Andrea Chalupa - The Huffington Post
"The three main soldiers each give out great performances. As the "big guy," Lowell Byers was by far my favorite of the three succeeding in strength and believability with every beat. This is a talented actor that really helps drive the piece home."
Mateo Moreno - Big Vision Empty Wallet
"More than once, I felt as if it were all really happening. The actors, especially Byers, Hare, and McCoy, brilliantly bring the drama and humor to life. They never miss a beat and even though their arms and legs are bound for the entire play, they move as if they are beautifully choreographed."

YOU NEVER CAN TELL May 2011...
"Mr. Valentine, the suitor to Gloria Clandon is played by Lowell Byers who gamely plows through the many personality facets of the dentist who would love but not marry. Mr. Byers handles the Algernon Montcrief-like comedy easily and with charisma..."
Irish Stage in NYC
"As the play's central couple, Jessica Osborne and Lowell Byers are superb: her Gloria is proud and thoughtful and in every way a suitable object of worship for his outsized insouciant."
Martin Denton - nytheatre.com
"Once the play has begun, we are introduced to our charismatic protagonist, the dentist Valentine played by Lowell Byers..."

THE CHANGING ROOM February 2011...
"Lowell Byers emphasizes Fielding's quiet, but sharp observation."
Erik Haagensen - Backstage
WOMEN AND WAR May 2010...
"I was also very impressed by Lowell Byers, the one man in the production. He plays every male role in the script, and switches from character to character flawlessly. It is fun to watch him transform from a pumped up "Phili" kid recently deployed to Vietnam, to a straight-laced 40's boy in France, to a depressed pilot in South Korea. It is interesting to watch as his posturing and facial expression changes from person to person, and he pulls it off so well it is as if you are watching entirely different actors."

HOLY DAYS November 2009...
"Lowell Byers as Will is wonderful; simple, straightforward, and strong."
Heather McAllister www.nytheater.com
"...strong performances by Lowell Byers as Molly's upbeat husband."
Lily Hodges www.villagevoice.com
"Finally, Lowell Byers' Will represents youth, energy and hope. He's strong, both in character as well as build, and he's been lucky enough to suffer less than his brother, even while he steadfastly sticks by him. However, he does suffer for his brother, for the loss and under-expressed sorrow...he even sheds tears of his own. But ultimately he's been spared and that gives him something that's in short supply around the farm - optimism. Subtle, but present optimism."
Karen Tortora-Lee The Happiest Medium
"Most terrific looking people, like Lowell Byers, have a tendancy to rely on their beauty to knock out an audience and then just do their lines and wear nice t-shirts. Byers has the physique of a swimmer and the pure good looks of someone who should be very famous in about six months...but while he's here in our community, he's working every moment. In much the same way as he did in "Look After You" in this summer's Fringe Festival, he serves the play, not the other way around. He exudes such a calm, even temperament, just existing in each moment, underplaying his own existence. Our company isn't producing anything until the fall of 2010, and it makes me sad because I'm pretty sure Lowell will be living in LA by then, missing the real work, but doing laps in a pool filled with cash."

LOOK AFTER YOU August 2009...
"The play works thanks to the appealing performances, particularly by Lowell Byers as Jake's plain speaking (is there any other kind) bartender friend."
Frank Scheck New York POST
"A charismatic, believable Lowell Byers."
Brian Scott Lipton www.theatermania.com
"Byers has a perfect bartender's charm as Paul."
Duncan Pflaster www.BroadwayWorld.com
"As Paul, a bartender with many a life lesson, Lowell Byers glides on stage with ease-so comfortable is he on the stage, you can understand why Hannah and Jake open up to him time and time again."
Dan Kitosser www.nytheater.com
"Similarly, what could have been merely expositional scenery, the role of Jake's friend Paul is brought charmingly to life by Lowell Byers. He's a bartender by trade and carries the easy grace of someone who's use to being taken into someone's confidence...Paul argues convincingly and from the heart as to why Jake needs to tell Hannah the truth. He's a good best friend to Jake, but over all he's just a really good friend to Hannah when he needs to be, even though she has no memory of him at all."
Karen Tortora-Lee www.neighborbeenyc.com
"Another great standout is Lowell Byers, as the best friend and bartender. This guy is so utterly charming, so self-effacing and lovely, that it makes sense why every character opens up to him...in this show, the best friend is such a sweetheart that he becomes a perfect person for the characters to open up to."
Sean Williams Gideon Productions LLC & www.seanrants.com
"Another wonderful role is Altman's buddy Paul, (naturally and believably played by Lowell Byers)...one of the most poignant parts of the show for me was the speech Byers makes telling Altman to '....make a choice...because the world will make one for you.' Another scene between him and Flory is fluid, and I often wonder why actors can't simply talk to each other like was seen in this show."
Katherine Stein www.BitchyActress.blogspot.com
"Since I swam in all the relay events I understood that I was only as good as the weakest leg. Freshmen year, I was that leg!" says a 26-time All-American Swimmer Lowell Byers, who takes the stage Aug 14-29 in MTWorks' Look After You. "Same with acting: it's more rewarding to have successful performances from the entire cast as opposed to just a few great moments."
