THE CRUCIBLE, JOHN PROCTOR

"...the evening belongs to Jihad Milhem. His portrayal of John Proctor, a man caught on the prongs of his own sin, is devastating. Every step he takes is fraught with danger..."

-Beki Pineda, Boulder Magazine 

"Jihad Milhem plays John Proctor with an intelligent and believable portrayal of an emotional journey of a flawed but decent man pushed to an impossible choice..."

-Alex Miller, Onstage Colorado

SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS, NED

"Ned (Jihad Milhem) presents some comic moments humming in his yoga pants while sitting in lotus pose."
-April Tooke, Onstage Colorado

BETC'S A CHRISTMAS CAROL, MULTIPLE ROLES 

"The always reliable Jihad Milhem manages multiple characters, including one of the ghosts, as well as some platform shoes that would kill a lesser man."

THE REMBRANDT, JONNY 

"With Henry is Johnny, a uniformed security guard and — as played by Jihad Milhem — one of the liveliest elements of the production."

- Juliet Wittman , Westword 


"This talented cast of five slide easily from character to character, era to era to bring the four scenes to life.... Jihad Milhem plays a dedicated museum guard who cares for Henry in the first scene and a compassionate medical caregiver who takes care of Henry’s partner in the fourth scene."

-Beki Pineda, Get Boulder Magazine

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, ED CARMICHAEL 

"Jihad Milhem is a good-humored Ed, Essie’s husband, creating ripples of silver sound on the xylophone to accompany her mad dancing."
-Juliet Wittman, Westword

GUARDS AT THE TAJ, BABUR

"...excellently acted by Sam Gilstrap as Humayun and Jihad Milhem as Babur..."

-Juliett Wittman, Westword

"The actors – Sam Gilstrap and Jihad Milhem – not only look the parts but bring a personal strength and depth to these difficult and penetrating roles."

-Beki Pineda, Boulder Magazine

"The BETC crew, led by artistic director Stephen Weitz, build a simple world that allows actors Sam Gilstrap and Jihad Milhem to indulge the dramatic dialogue that follows, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable (and laudable) performance."

- Sarah Haas, Boulder Weekly

SHE RODE HORSES LIKE THE STOCK EXCHANGE, HENRY 

"Milhem is endearingly clueless as someone who’s along for the ride in a journey rife with excess and corruption." 

-The Daily Camera
