On Monday morning, May 23, Charles McNulty of the Los Angeles Times and Paul Hodgins of the Orange County Register (both of whom had seen earlier productions), also found it memorable:
“A revival of Three Days of Rain … confirms the charms and structural ingenuity of the original and it retains the haunting aftereffects that the play left the first time around. Directed reverently and without undue dramatic fuss by the theater's artistic director, David Emmes, this Rain doesn't attempt to resurrect its predecessor's ghost. These actors make the roles their own, and Thomas Buderwitz's scenic design gives us a grittier and more detailed Manhattan loft than the debut production did back in 1997.”

“Greenberg has written a kind of generational mystery in which the past really is another country, one that the present, groping for insight into its own origins, can’t help misjudging. Much as I was intoxicated by the play when I first encountered it at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1997 … I don’t think I fully appreciated the depth of feeling in the work until Emmes’ production.”
– Charles McNulty, LA Times
