gorgeously rich singing voice
Beauty and the Beast – “Jacob Thompson is perfection as Gaston. His handsome looks, conceited swagger, and gorgeously rich singing voice, are matched with spot-on comic timing. He nails every one of his acting bits, and works like a well-oiled machine with his scene partner Lefou played by Courter Simmons. Thompsons facial reactions were so entertaining, I had a hard time watching other people when he was on stage.” – Broadway World 
written-to-be-a-scene-stealer performance
Beauty and the Beast – “But the standout is Jacob Thompson’s written-to-be-a-scene-stealer performance as Gaston. While Thompson has played the Beast before, he seems born to play the delightfully vain self-centered boorish buffoon worthy of another six adjectives. Thompson has a muscular voice that effortlessly reaches notes in the basement, a rubbery face with eyebrows that knit in clueless concentration, and strangely handsome face with a cleft chin and self-satisfied grin. It’s no surprise that he has played the title character in Bye Bye Birdie. He is especially effective in his acrobatic byplay with Courter Simmons as Lefou who, appropriately, plays the sidekick like an over-the-top vaudeville clown.” – Florida Theater On Stage
