Paul Herzberg’s Shimon Peres is an amusing study in majestic vanity. 
(Lloyd Evans / Spectator)

Shimon Peres, Israeli foreign minister (later PM), nicely played by Paul Herzberg as a silky pragmatist.
(Mark Lawson / New Statesman)

Paul Herzberg achieves A notable double: as a frazzled professor and the Israeli foreign minister, Shimon Peres.
(Michael Arditti / Express)

Paul Herzberg who delivers a cracking take on Shimon Peres.
(Jonathan Baz)

A flawless cast including Paul Herzberg as the Israeli professor who waded in to get the peace talks under way.
(British Theatre Guide / Mark Ludman)

There’s a point too where Rosencrantz and Guildenstern do emerge: two Israeli ‘semi-well-dressed’ professor Paul Herzberg (later a startlingly lifelike Shimon Peres).
(Fringe review 2017)

There is a degree of comedy (not least in Paul Herzberg’s economics professor in a scruffy raincoat, the nearest Israel would come at first to deliberately unofficial envoys).
