*Washington Post, “Maboud Ebrahimzadeh, ferociously bitter and despairing as Judas… unobtrusively nests while the debate largely swirls around him… The play demands everything from whiffs of burlesque to the intensity of chapel, and Vreeke’s 15 actors routinely turn it on a dime.”

*MD Theatre Guide, “Maboud Ebrahimzadeh is a magnetic force to be reckoned with as Judas… Ebrahimzadeh owns each moment he is given and passionately drives it with full force. I have to say Ebrahimzadeh’s final encounter with Jesus is emotionally heart-rending.  His desperate cries from a deep sense of loss and feelings of being betrayed are clearly evident.“

*Washington Citypaper, “…a spherical dais in the center, where the accused (Maboud Ebrahimzadeh) sits or lays, seeming to writhe in a hell more private than the one to which he may soon be banished.”

*BroadwayWorld, “As the title character, Ebrahimzadeh’s performance isn’t so much about what Judas says but more specifically what he conveys… Ebrahimzadeh is giving a focused and stellar performance. We can feel Judas’ struggle by looking into his eyes, and observing his lack of movement and response to others..”
