CABARET

"Ben Prayz finds the balance of charm and menace in Ernst Ludwig."  
Miami Herald

"Ben Prayz excels as Ernst Ludwig, the Nazi, bringing to the fore a role that is sometimes subdued."
Broadwayworld.com

"Two actors deserve special credit...Ben Prayz is exceedingly good at being bad as Ernst Ludwig.  The actor, who last appeared here in Old Jews Telling Jokes, does quite the turnaround in Cabaret, portraying the quintessential Nazi."  PalmBeachArtsPaper

OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES

"Ben Prayz brings a wry take to his humorous tales. (The cast) demonstrate they know how to both tell and set up a joke equally well."  
Talkin' Broadway

"...the cast delivers this material with unbridled abandon and joy...a tip of the yarmulke to the indefatigable Ben Prayz..."  
Florida Theatre On Stage

"...it is easy to accept (the cast) as Jewish, for they understand the cadence of jokes and know how to deliver a punch line." 
Palm Beach Arts Paper

"The cast sell it as hard and adeptly as anyone can hope for." 
Florida Sun Sentinel

THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT

“…a highlights reel...would include the interrogation of Ben Prayz's Caiaphas the Elder, which confronts head on the explosive issue of anti-Semitism.”
Backstage

“Other characters emerge that should seemingly absolve Judas of guilt, like Caiaphas the Elder (an excellent Ben Prayz) whose interrogation artfully addresses anti-Semitism…”
The Westsider

HAPPY DAYS

"Ben Prayz was a likable Howard...I hope I get the chance to see more of his obvious talent in future shows." Discover Clarksville

“Ben Prayz is fine as hardware honcho Howard Cunningham.” Broadwayworld.com

MIC

“Performances by this ensemble cast are very strong across the board.  Standouts include Ben Prayz’s Joel, a sobering (though mildly intoxicated) homeless man.”
NYTheatre.com

THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND

“…an excellent realization of a very complicated script.  All the actors do a great job, especially Julian Elfer, Nan Wray, Maggie Dashiell, and Ben Prayz.”
Broadwayworld.com

MACBETH

“Daniel Smith as Macduff and Ben Prayz as Banquo put forward clean, sympathetic performances of Macbeth’s foils — men who recoil from the atrocities committed by the play’s namesake.”
Queens Chronicle

SOCKS AND CAKES

“…an exceptional blend of comedy and drama… Ben Prayz is equally impressive in his gloriously theatrical turn as the always grinning David.”
Short Films Round-Up

“David (an energetic Ben Prayz)…always has a story to tell…and he does so with a Nicholson-esque grin and leer…”
Blogcritics Video

“Antonio Padovan’s film is extremely well made…Ben Prayz, as the sleek David, may have one of the flashiest grins I have seen in recent memory.”
