The show's most fascinating moments occur when Sommers incorporates the original recordings and the Yiddish-speaking judge can be heard feebly throwing rabbinical bromides and blandishments at cases of such hopelessly intractable incompatibility. Sommers' tight staging (with Carol Doehring's crisp lights and period-perfect costumes by Lois Tedrow) and a powerful ensemble lend the proceedings considerable polish . . . Bill Raden – LA Weekly

Set in the 1940s, "South of Delancey," at the Fremont Centre Theatre, is well-directed, beautifully acted and consistently entertaining. F. Kathleen Foley – LA Times

This is an unusual offering… visually beautiful and well performed… A compelling theatrical story laced with Jewish tradition and rampant lust alternately. Pat Taylor – Tolucan Times

"South of Delancey" is rich and fascinating, and a delight for those of us who love being steeped in the most unremarkable of human experiences. Frances Baum Nicholson – Pasadena Star-News
