Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Vaulting back and forth in time, Ziegler's memory play is both elegy and cautionary tale, imbued with poignant loss and keen regret. Under Andre Barron's sensitive and appropriately delicate direction, Perrault and Orazio are superb. However, it is Zuckerman's tour-de-force turn - twitchy, manic, comical and anguished - that dazzles."

Broadway World - Recommended

"...The actors periodically and seamlessly break the fourth wall narrating plot points directly to the audience. Barron smartly directs the action as a continuous build until...(no spoiler alert here) a conclusion. As in Ziegler's other recent play ACTUALLY, all her characters possess questionable, very human characteristics, very open to interpretation. (Click here for Ziegler's interview on ACTUALLY.) How you, as an audience, react to the character's ending situations will depend on if you feel the evening's 'festivities' were 'better' handled by either one of the three characters. Ziegler fills her sharp narrative with very clever puns and some indirect/most direct references."

"...Zuckerman, with this wild, indescribable, distinctive, magnetic internal machinery, adds much of the tension not supplied by the script, as Ziegler is forever interrupting any impetus by adding first-person monologues directed at us. And even Zuckerman can’t help when Nate — in a heightened doped-up state — persuades the others to play a guessing game, because it feels very Boys in the Band, but, again, without the drama."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Questions of "What if..." haunt the memories of the trio of 30somethings who propel Anna Ziegler's A Delicate Ship, the latest dramatic sensation from North Hollywood's Road Theatre Company and a play that will stick with you long after its final fade to black."

"...At 90 minutes, the play feels protracted. But the production is handsome, and Zuckerman's ferocious and charismatic performance demands to be seen."

Stage Raw - Recommended

"...Director Andre Barron has fashioned a skillful and sensitive production, and his actors inhabit it nicely. Zuckerman dominates the action as the flamboyant and manipulative Nate; Orazio provides a sympathetic take on the quieter Sam, and Perrault highlights the desperate confusion of a woman torn in two directions."

Haines His Way - Somewhat Recommended

"...Andre Barron has tightly directed his cast and keeps the tension slowly building to the inevitable blowup. The trio of actors do a fine job of bringing their characters to life. Zuckerman is at times charming, even when he is unflaggingly annoying. Orazio grounds Sam in his decency, reaching for his guitar whenever he feels the need for a security blanket. Perrault has the most difficult role as Sarah is torn between two very different men and not sure which one she wants to win her. Ziegler has written an interesting take on the memory play format with all three characters sharing memories, some from the future as well as the past."
