See it if You like intense dramas about the holocost. This is fictional but uses a lot of facts so it feels very real. Good acting.
Don't see it if You don't like people messing around with history. This never happened so it's a little obvious where it's headed from the start.
See it if You want a stylized portrait of a complicated historical figure. You want to see great acting in a concise play.
Don't see it if You want stylization that sustains throughout: I lost them a few times. You want a new angle on the Holocaust: videos presented nothing new.
"We cannot ignore this tale and it is a legacy we ought to be sharing with our children...With a polished and accomplished performance from Marriott as Mengele, Zadow as Azra’il is given the opportunity to grow and take scenes, sharing and commanding the stage when required...'Mengele' served to remind me of the lessons of the past and how ignorant some people are in trying to avoid them for their and our futures. It scared me...Such is the power of good theatre done well."
"Exploring the nature of evil, 'Mengele' is one of the most powerful and astonishing pieces of theatre I have ever seen...There are also moments of beauty and one or two comic lines – hard to believe...This play stirred my emotions and brought me to tears. It was a true masterclass in acting and writing and there were some jaw-dropping twists with both players excelling themselves in the final denouement."
