JULIUS CAESAR at Folger Theatre

     *CityPaper, “As Casca, that scheming tribune whom Caesar wishes were fatter, Maboud Ebrahimzadeh sports the most minutely landscaped beard since Wes Bentley’s in The Hunger Games. His natural geniality makes him a devious pick for the guy who comes to Caesar’s house and beckons him to his death.”

*DCTheatreScene, “This dynamo ensemble leaves little room to love or despise any of the play’s ill-fated characters, which serves as testament to their success. Because there’s a beauty, even a poetry, in that ambivalence. From the Soothsayer… to Maboud Ebrahimzadeh’s treacherous Casca, every character is haunted by something.”

*TheHillIsHome, “Actually, it’s a bit like watching House of Cards. The flatterer Casca, played expertly by Maboud Ebrahimzadeh, provides a bit of humor and guilt, but most of the characters are far more plagued by the emotion than anyone in Netflix’s dangerous ensemble.”

*Metro Weekly, ” It’s equally hard to take your eyes off Maboud Ebrahimzadeh in his role as the weasly, duplicitous Casca…”
