Reviews of Flare Path at Theatre 40, Beverly Hills:
"Adored by his men for his bravery and bonhomie, Lt. Teddy Graham (Christian Pedersen, in the linchpin performance of the show) is having a rare visit with his actress wife..."
-The Los Angeles Times
"Saving best for last, the charismatic star turn of recent LA arrival Pedersen proves the next best thing to having Leslie Howard resurrected from the dead to play Teddy. Not only does Pedersen have the debonair blond good looks to leave audiences as torn between two lovers as Patricia is, the raw emotion he gives Teddy’s shell-shocked meltdown scene makes it one of the year’s most devastating and memorable."
"Five stars. Pedersen’s acting was remarkable to see."
"Look out for a fantastic performance by Christian Pedersen as the husband, a seemingly confident pilot who breaks down and confesses his fears in the play’s best scene."
Reviews of Eternal Equinox, Off-Broadway at 59E59:
"Director Kevin Cochran has assembled a sterling cast...Christian Pedersen hits all the right notes as the alluring adventurer who turns their relationship inside out."
"These three are engaging company"
-The New York Times
"Pedersen as George Mallory is a tall, blonde, godly specimen with chiseled features and a body the envy of all. The actor fulfills the famous description of him quoted in the play by Vanessa, “a body sculpted by Praxiteles, the face of a Botticelli.” His very coolness and stately quiet is at once erotic and asexual...What more can be said about the performances of Michael Gabriel Goodfriend, Hollis McCarthy and Christian Pedersen than that we feel we have met the real Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and George Mallory?"
"Christian Pedersen is spot on as George Mallory. George is a handsome man, used to sweeping people along with him through the force of his vision. Mr. Pedersen portrays a man extremely self-confident, but aware of his own shortcomings."
Reviews of Vieux Carré at The Pearl:
-The New Yorker
"Finally there is Sky, a handsome young drifter who appears out of nowhere and may be The Writer's salvation or his ruination or both. He's exactly what Tom says the Gentleman Caller is in The Glass Menagerie: 'the long-delayed but always expected something that we live for.' Christian Pedersen embodies this idea to a T."
Reviews of Dead Ringer at New Jersey Rep:
-The New York Times
"NJ Rep's creepy world premiere is worthy of the season...as Dwight, the blond-haired Christian Pedersen has the right 'aw-shucks' naivete. His blue eyes get progressively wider as events become more shocking."
-The Newark Star Ledger
"In his Rep debut, Pedersen recalls the gangly 1960's Western actor Will Hutchins in his portrait of the seemingly naive and kind-hearted Dewey."
-The Asbury Park Press
Review of Walking The Volcano at The Vineyard Playhouse:
-Sandy MacDonald, The Boston Globe
Reviews of Cornbury: The Queen's Governor at the Hudson Guild:
"Greenspan is surrounded by capable actors cast to type and playing to the hilt: …Christian Pedersen as the boyish foe of the fancy-dressing governor who is seduced into rapturous fascination.”
-Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"Christian Pedersen, who plays Van Dam's son Rip, has a lovely and sincere presence, thoughtfully underplaying the role against the histrionics of everyone else." -Duncan Pflaster, BroadwayWorld
“Christian Pedersen makes a favorable impression as the pastor's son Rip, whose allegiance starts to shift following an encounter with Cornbury.” -Dan Bacalzo, TheaterMania
“When the pastor's handsome son Rip (Christian Pedersen) attempts to deliver a petition to Cornbury protesting his comportment, their confrontation is so well written and performed that their sword fight becomes a seductive moment, a peek into Cornbury's soul beneath all the flowing silk, satin, and lace.”
-Leonard Jacobs, Backstage
“Cornbury is a great deal of fun, and like all of the very best theatre, offers genuine substance as well. Standouts among the supporting players include Christian Pedersen as hunky naif Rip Van Dam.”
-Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com
Reviews of Another Vermeer at the Abingdon Theatre:
"Christian Pedersen delivers a crisp commanding performance as Lt. Thomas Keller..."
-Jo Ann Rosen, NYTheatre.com
"Kelly Morgan has directed a proficient cast headed by Pendleton...Christian Pedersen as Lieutenant Keller lends apt support..." -John Simon, Bloomberg.com
"Another Vermeer proves that thinking can be as dangerous as a street fight." –Mark Blankenship, Variety
Review of Five by Three at the Midtown Int'l Theatre Festival:
"Five by Three is a fun and amusing show and the 13 member cast does a great job. Standouts include Christian Pedersen...it will leave you laughing..." Byrne Harrison, Off-Off Broadway Review
Review of the short film The Other Woman:
"We see the young woman who steals a man (Martin, played by the charming Christian Pedersen) from his older lover...a thoughful film..." --- Wendy R. Williams, NewYorkCool.com Read what John Patrick Shanley had to say about the film, see production stills and learn more at the film's official website: www.theotherwoman2007.com
Reviews of Barefoot in the Park at Arkansas Rep:
"Paul, a careful, buttoned-down lawyer, is acted by soap and stage vet Christian Pedersen. Rangy, in skinny ties and with a part in his blonde hair so neat it seems cultivated from childhood, Pedersen is every bit the cautious, by-the-book type. But in his stentorian reading of the character, the actor makes Paul someone who, in protecting the prudent course, is just as willing as Corie to get crazy." ---Lindsay Millar, Arkansas Times
"An era-appropriate optimism buoys even the bickering as newlyweds Corie and Paul (Christian Pedersen, something of a Nordic Clark Kent) settle into their sixth-floor walk-up." ---Kyle Brazzel, Arkansas Gazette
Reviews of Peace Now! at the Workshop Theatre:
"Christian Pedersen provides much of the humor as a likeable but not-too-smart hippie who keeps hitting on all the women in the group...the must-see production of this year's festival..." --Jeanette Toomer, BackStage
"Standouts include Christian Pedersen as Scott...I wanted to love these people, who more than once compared themselves to French students standing up for freedom behind the barricades" --Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com
Reviews of Historic Times at the 78th Street Theatre Lab:
"Historic Times is one of those plays that deserves a life beyond its Equity Showcase run. It's inspired, stimulating theatre of the highest order. It demands to be seen." ---Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com
"Christian Pedersen was unbelievably crass" ---Victor Gluck, BackStage
