Wish You Were Here | Yale Repertory Theatre | Oct 5th-28th 2023
"Nazanin is portrayed by Anita Abdinezhad with a fierceness that is present throughout the show. Abdinezhad lives within this role with conviction and poise, simultaneously exuding a prickly attitude while also maintaining the raw grief – in regard to her friends, her country, her life – that Nazanin possesses at her core. Abdinezhad’s is a truly riveting performance to watch."
- Kiersten Bjork (October 24, 2023) | White Birch Blog
"Abdinezhad has a gift for balance and level-headedness, able to command the stage and also play it straight to her wilder friends." - Christopher Arnott (October 17, 2023) Hartford Courant
"Anita Abdinezhad delivers a sharp, gut-wrenching portrait of a woman with a hole in her heart. A queen of deflection, she is quick with a joke or an insult. But as she becomes close with different members of her friend group, Abdinezhad also reveals Nazanin’s tender underbelly." - Julia Sears (October 17th, 2023)
