Electric Lodge & Fringe Management,LLC present New Light Theater Project’s HITLER’S TASTERS. Winner of the 2017 Susan Glaspell award, Hitler’s Tasters was named “Best of the Fringe” by The Stage, with a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019.

Written by Michelle Kholos Brooks, Hitler’s Tasters is a dark comedy about four young German women who had the “honor” of being chosen as Adolf Hitler’s food tasters. Based on true events in history, with shades of 2020, Hitler’s Tasters explores the way these girls navigate sexuality and friendship, patriotism and poison during the Third Reich.

An anachronistic retelling of a historical footnote, Hitler’s Tasters is about what girls discuss, even as they wait to see if they will survive another meal. They gossip and dream, they question and dance; they want to love, laugh and above all, they want to survive. A coming of age story about being girls as the world considers them women, it is also a story of complacency, acquiescence and the banality of evil and its insipience.

Special talkback to benefit Open Temple on March 22nd details:

Hitler’s Tasters Talkback: Hitler as our Hilarious Imaginary Friend.

Tapas, Talkback and Theatre featuring David Suissa from the Jewish Journal, Michelle Kholos Brooks (playwright) and Max Brooks. Moderated by Rabbi Lori Shapiro, our talk back encourages spirited discussion and debate on the increasing presence of Hitler in pop-culture imagery, and the way we respond to this taboo presence.
