Review for Miracle on South Division St.:
'"The dialogue is fast and witty, delivered by actors who are masters of their crafts...Melody Ladd as Beverly is also making her Shadowland debut. Her deliberate overacting has the audience in absolute stitches. Exaggerated gestures, over-the-top emoting and uproarious antics play well to her character's self-centered, sarcastic, and impatient personality."
- Carol Montana Sullivan County Democrat
Reviews for The Playboy of the Western World:
"Melody Ladd is outstanding as young pubkeeper, Pegeen Mike. Her riveting, trademark stare mixes surprise with indignation and is truly unforgettable." - Hugh Hunter Chestnut Hill Local
"As Pegeen Mike, Melody Ladd brings the small town bar mistress to life. Ladd delivers a self assured, strong-willed, pseudo-masculine presence...the delicacy, nuance, bravado, and despair with which Ladd imbues her character make for an impressive performance." - Ginger Agnew B Sharp's Studio 6
"Ladd’s Pegeen Mike is a world-weary young woman, who only briefly reveals her tender side. Her journey through the arc of the play is profound and deeply sympathetic." - Joshua Herren Phindie
Reviews for Millbrook Playhouse:
On Fox and the Fairway:
"Melody Ladd, as Pamela Peabody, begins as a stereotypical hardened divorcee, only to reveal the fires of new life starting up in her heart...she claims “hysterical blindness”...and the resulting mayhem – as she staggers around the stage – is a highlight of the show." -The Express
"Aaron White and Melody Ladd, who play the Manninghams, give outstanding performances...“Gaslight” is a masterpiece of suspense. The acting is faultless. This play is not to be missed." -Karen Elias, The Express
Reviews for Dear Jack, Dear Louise:
"The two actors do an excellent job of conveying the unsettling nature of this transition...And Melody Ladd...reveals a growing strength of character as she is faced with the awful realities of war and understands how they impinge directly on her life and her relationship...The actors embody wonderfully the terror and the joy of this magical coming together." -The Express
Reviews for Awake and Sing!
"Ladd is tremendous in her moment of doubt and hesitation." -John Timpane The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Melody Ladd also plays a complex character in Hennie, and she nails it. Hennie’s tough exterior and soft interior are displayed by Ladd, and her character is one that is hard to take at times but Ladd makes her shine by the end. She is not your typical 20-something woman in the 1930s, and this can be much appreciated as Melody Ladd gives her a fresh image that is believable and endearing. It is refreshing to watch such a unique female character find her way on the stage." - Amanda VanNostrand The Theatre Guide
