Check out Hitler's Tasters in the LA Times: 

'Age 28, going on 12: How adult actors pull off playing children onstage' by Stuart Miller, featuring interviews from Michelle Kholos Brooks, Sarah Norris, & Hallie Griffin

A dark comedy about the young women who have the “honor” of being Adolf Hitler’s food tasters. Based on true events, Hitler’s Tasters explores the way girls navigate sexuality, friendship, patriotism, and poison during the Third Reich. Using an anachronistic retelling of an historical footnote, Hitler’s Tasters considers what girls discuss as they wait to see if they will survive another meal.

About the play

Unfortunately, after only four performances, our LA production of Hitler’s Tasters closed prematurely due to Covid-19.
