Intense, Resonant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Good show about hopes, dreams, propaganda and lost lives of pure breed Deutschland girls. They were brainwashed but awakening was scary

Don't see it if Modern music, cell phones and selfie are not what you expect in a play about H*Tyler's testers.

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Slow, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if Sometime funny but always dark, about them thinking one way and realize its not the way they think it is, its a big hit in the face

Don't see it if It with cellphone and today music. Subject is very important. This may not be for some people. But we need to see to remember and think.

Repetitive, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Quirky

See it if interested in a dark comedy about complacency, tyranny, compliance in Hitler's time with parallels to our current situation. Very well acted

Don't see it if you don't care for anachronisms. It starts to feel repetitive as it progresses, but overall, worked well.

Great acting, Original, Dark yet funny, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if Use of satire to show how we blindly fall victim to propaganda and support dictators. Makes you think about how history repeats itself.

Don't see it if uncomfortable with dark quirky comedies about the Holocaust. Only 90 minutes but felt slow at times.

Time Out New York

"4/5 Stars! Examining fanaticism through a cult of teenage girls is a clever conceit, and...the performers share a moving and believable rapport. Despite Sarah Norris' well-calibrated direction, the play is a tough tonal dance—not every laugh line lands, and the interstitial movement sequences start to feel like filler. But these minor missteps don't undermine the play's power, or its message: For the insecure and disenfranchised, it's easier to swallow dangerous lies than to face the ugly truth."

"Imagine what it must be like knowing that your next meal could be your last. And not in an 'eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die' sort of way. This is what life is like for the teenage girls depicted in 'H*tler's Tasters,' a darkly comic play by Michelle Kholos Brooks that opened last night at Theatre Row."

"The tale feels more chillingly relevant today than when it was first staged at the intimate IRT Theater in 2018. The present cultural and political climate is even more ripe and hopefully ready for this cautionary tale. The girls, Liesel (Hallie Griffin), Hilda (Mary Kathryn Kopp), Anna (Kaitlin Paige Longoria), and Margot (Hannah Sturges originated the roles in the IRT production and are back to reprise their roles beautifully under Sarah Norris’ skillful direction, again."
