- A first-rate production. Mr. Akhtar packs an impressive amount of smart, heated talk -- as well as a few surprising twists, including a shocking burst of violence -- into the play's taut duration.
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
- Akhtar's blistering 'Disgraced' opened with a punch and power that won it a Pulitzer Prize. Few playwrights are examining what Akhtar does, certainly not with his insightfulness, and his play is breathtaking -- and not a little uncomfortable -- to watch.
- Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
- In truth, this is a superior production to the one that opened at Lincoln Center in 2012, with a more charismatic cast and a better sense of the rising ideological stakes.

2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama Disgraced, by playwright Ayad Akhtar, is the story of Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. When Amir and his wife Emily, a white artist influenced by Islamic paintings, host a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. The production is directed by Kimberly Senior who directed the previous Lincoln Center Theater production.
