World Premier of Hitler’s Tasters continues at Centenary Stage Company

ht 4
Centenary Stage Company’s World Premier of Michelle Kholos Brooks’ Hitler’s Tasters continues its run in the Lackland Performing Arts Center now through April 22 and audiences and critics alike have fallen in love. “Making this world premiere particularly special are the performances of the four young women. Director Sarah Norris has cast a group of remarkably talented women… it is easy to fall in love with these impressive young women and the unique story.” (Rick Busciglio, NJfootlights.net).

                Inspired by a true story, imagine knowing that every mouthful of food you ate could be your last. Such was the life for the young women charged with the task of tasting Hitler’s food so that he would not be poisoned. “All four actresses are excellent”, says Jane Primerano on NJ Arts Maven. Winner of the 2017 Susan Glaspell Award, Michelle Kholos Brooks’ Hitler’s Tasters is an alternately engaging and compelling play tells the story of the young women who three times day, every day, were “honored” with the opportunity “to die for their Führer”. But while they wait, like all girls throughout time, they gossip, they dream, they question and dance, until the door opens and the guard appears with each meal. 

                Michelle Kholos Brooks’ Hitler’s Tasters continues its run now through April 22 in the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Ave. Hackettstown, NJ.  Remaining performances are Wednesdays, April 11 and 18 at 2PM; Thursdays, April 12 and 19 at 7:30PM; Fridays, April 13 and 20 at 8PM; Saturdays, April 14 and 21 at 8PM and Sundays, April 15 and 22 at 2PM.
