Reza Momenzada

“ The Sound of Waiting is worth seeing for the emergence of an exciting new talent: Reza Momenzada… in his first professional gig, [Reza] is memorably dynamic.” – Diana Simmonds for Stage Noise

“Momenzada, a former refugee himself, is striking in his professional acting debut, delivering the text in clear, emotionally uncluttered fashion and letting Butler’s prose do the heavy lifting.” – Audrey Journal

“Momenzada, making his professional debut, presents a broken man holding himself together for the sake of his daughter. He delivers Butler’s text with a wonderful pace and variety but lets the words elicit the emotional response from the audience rather than attempting to overdramatise the work.”

– Broadway World

“[Momenzada] conveys a palpable credence to the character.” – Australian Stage

“Being almost entirely expositional​ it is also a considerable challenge for an actor and a director, and Momenzada​ rises to this challenge with mounting and affecting intensity…” – Sydney Morning Herald

“[Momenzada] brings Hamed’s strength of character immediately to the fore, while allowing us to interpret the shock, PTSD and willpower in the man. Both of these artists have given us fully fleshed characters without which the denouement of the piece would struggle to survive.”

– Sydney Arts Guide

“Acting by Reza Momenzada and Gabrielle Scawthorn convincingly teases out the complexities of the story, though we are firmly in Momenzada’s corner as Hamed.” – The Buzz from Sydney
