Presse : Les critiques sont très mauvaises:

"Please cue sound effects of chalk scratching on countless blackboards and the ping, ping, ping of an endlessly dripping faucet, and you have some idea of what Mr. Denham must be going through night after night after night." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"David Mamet said his new play, written for frequent muse, Al Pacino, would be 'better than oral sex.' Oral sex? 'China Doll' is not even better than oral surgery. At least for that sort of medical procedure you get painkillers. And it’s not a complete waste of time and money." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"This must be some kind of cynical Broadway-producer experiment: Will people pony up $150 to see Al Pacino in any old garbage? The answer is a resounding yes." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"'China Doll' is less a fully realized drama than an elongated rant." Roma Torre for NY1

"'China Doll' offers the sad spectacle of two world-class artists turning in their lamest work." David Cote for Time Out New York

"The play itself is a meandering one-note character study of a doomed man." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"There's a dispiriting fatigue to the writing here, even in the customary rhythmic speech that long ago became a Mamet trademark." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Come back, come back, wherever you are, David Mamet. All is forgiven (even 'Race') if you will just quit jerking us around on non-plays like 'China Doll' and get a grip." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
