To my shame, I have never seen this play before! As a play it is not brilliant, but holds your attention throughout. The climax right at the end, makes it all worth it! Goodman was brilliant and enthralling. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Ken McAlpine

I last saw this play (on TV) when I was 16, and it impressed me then. But this production, and the performance of the cast, really brought to life Brecht's mix of humour and horror.

Brodie

It's a thought-provoking play and a wonderful performance. You laugh and cry a little at the same time because there's truth in what they say. It could not have ended on a better note, I got goosebumps from that last scene!

Rodney Franklin

Wonderful and inspiring for me, my wife and especially my 14 yr old daughter who is doing the rise of Hitler at school - harrowing for her. A great night out!

Robert Parnham

Extraordinary performance by Henry Goodman and cast. There are comical moments but then you are hit with a scene where the disturbing reality of the story reveals itself. Nowhere does this manifest itself more than the final scene which drew a gasp throughout the theatre. MIssed seeing it at Chichester so really pleased to have seen it in London . Tremendous.

Jonathan

Superb! Henry Goodman is brilliant what an amazing performance and transformation from gangster to dictator. The whole cast were superb. It's one of those plays that you realize immediately as a once in a lifetime event. Thoroughly recommended - if you can get a ticket. The last scene is truly shocking by the way...
