THE CONTAINER at Center Stage

     *DCTheatreScene, “The ferocity with which actor Maboud Ebrahimzadeh shakes up the group — his explosive temper threatening to trip up his charitable impulses — fuels an astonishing middle act of an already strong show. Ebrahimzadeh has put in some powerhouse performances recently (his work in Keegan Theatre’s A Few Good Men last month and in Round House Theatre’s Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo last fall come readily to mind), and it’s with roles like this that he keeps proving himself as one of the most exciting rising stars in the area.”

A FEW GOOD MEN at Keegan Theatre

*Washington Post, “The engaging Maboud Ebrahimzadeh nails the wisecracking humor and guarded braininess of lead defense attorney Lt. j.g. Daniel A. Kaffee, a Harvard alum whose deceptively flip attitude masks a craving for success.”

*CityPaper, “The best of them is Maboud Ebrahimzadeh as that Harvard lawyer. His confident, winsome performance, admitting just the right glimmer of doubt, proves him plenty capable of carrying a big show on his shoulders. “

*BroadwayWorld, “Maboud Ebrahimzadeh steps up to the plate and hits a home run as Lt. Kaffee, and not just in the softball scene. Ebrahimzadeh inhabits Kaffee’s complex skin – flippant, smart, charming, and irritating – with ease. After seeing this actor in many solid supporting roles (Boged for Theatre J, Side Man, 1st Stage, and his magnificent turn as Musa in Bengal Tiger at the Bagdhad Zoo for Round House last year), it is wonderful to see Ebrahimzadeh command the stage effortlessly as Kaffee.”

*DC Metro Theatre Arts, Maboud Ebrahimzadeh gave the most likable performance I have ever seen. His portrayal of LTJG Daniel A. Kaffee was down to earth, emotionally compelling, and just made you want to hang out with him after the show. He carried this show with aloofness and artistry, creating a character bound to remind you of your cool big brother or best friend while making your heart jump out of your chest with excitement.”

*MD Theatre Guide, “(Maboud Ebrahimzadeh) is the quick-witted, devil may care lawyer who doesn’t seem a Navy lifer. Against type, Ebrahimzadeh is darker-skinned with a shaved head, halting us from cruising to any comparisons. He easily handles the off-putting nature of the character,”

*DC Metro Theatre Arts, “(Maboud Ebrahimzadeh), whose impressive range builds in Act Two to its own emotional detonation.”

A MAN, HIS WIFE, AND HIS HAT at The Hub Theatre

*Washington Post, “Maboud Ebrahimzadeh aces the role of Hetchman’s kindly, peculiar neighbor.”

*DCTheareScene, “Everyone is good, and Olinick, Rambow and Ebrahimzadeh are superb… As for Ebrahimzadeh and Rambow, they raise the stakes enough so that it is clear that though this may be a matter of indifference for Hetchman, it is not for them.”

*DC Metro Theatre Arts, “I am always a sucker for first-rate comedic performances and Maboud Ebrahimzadeh as Hetchman’s friend Meckel does not disappoint. We care about Hetchman because Meckel cares. Ebrahimzadeh combines strong acting with good comic timing.”

*MD Theatre Guide, “Maboud Ebrahimzadeh adds a wonderful turn… Providing crisp movement and comedic chops, we are drawn to him onstage… he injects energy.”

BOGED at Theater J

     *DCMetroTheaterArts, “Danny Rotem (Maboud Ebrahimzadeh) makes a much slower progression to the corrupt side. Starting out as a vehement youth possessed with a thirst for answers of truth and righteousness, when the pressure is placed upon him he eventually caves, as cowardly and shamefully as the reporters; only Ebrahimzadeh’s character uses his position within the military as his excusable scapegoat. His fierce start to the show dwindles with the hope for righteousness and by the end he portrays as meek a character as the others that cower in fear of the truth.”

BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO at Round House Theatre

*Washington Post, “The impressive ensemble… compellingly embody the contradictions of a onetime cradle of civilization where the laws of the jungle now hold sway.”

*DCTheatreScene, “Ebrahimzadeh’s Musa is a virtuoso of conflicting feelings and shifting loyalties…”

*Washingtonian, “Special kudos must go to Ebrahimzadeh for his tragic, funny, wonderfully realized Musa.”

*BroadwayWorld, “Played by Ebrahimzadeh… with With humor, dignity, and complexity, Musa is the heart of BENGAL TIGER… Ebrahimzadeh stands out in a uniformly strong acting ensemble. We really see much of the play through Musa’s eyes, and the actor handles the responsibility with truth and a depth of understanding that is riveting.”

*Maryland Theatre Guide “As Musa, Maboud Ebrahimzadeh gives a gut wrenching performance: you see what the war has done to his people.

*DC Metro Arts, “Ebrahimzadeh is superlative  – his acting is all of a piece and his cries of anguish sear into one’s soul.”
