The best way to delegitimize something is to laugh at it. Be aware of what it is, but treat it as it deserves to be.... full review

I thought this was great... totally in the spirt of the fringe... and a great take on Hitler that I have yet to see. The comedy was primo... and that's not just being kind. The writing, the concept, so good. The casting and acting, vunderbar. Totally enjoyed myself, and this is my favorite of Steve's so far. Great job, everyone. This is one I'd see twice.... full review

Recommended At last year’s Hollywood Fringe, in Tony Danza's Letterz 2 2pac, the writer/comedian Steven Benaquist brilliantly impersonated a clueless Tony Danza sharing Tupac Shakur’s letters from prison. In that TV-earnest “conversation for the ages,” Benaquist gave a deadpan performance of Danza’s revelations about — and appropriations of — blackness that was hilarious and jaw-dropping. This year Benaquist returns with another satisfying hall-of-mirrors comedy, Too Many Hitlers. Here, at the conclusion of WWII, all Hitler’s decoy-doubles have been summoned to the bunker.

Hilarious and clever-they have you laughing at these incredibly insane circumstances and at Nazis. Not an easy feat. Well done. ... full review

A hysterical premise gets more and more absurd as the play moves along. ... full review

Benaquist has a signature style of silly that is equal parts clever, absurd, & never takes itself too seriously, while playing it mostly straight. I see a lot of Peter Sellers & Mel Brooks in his writing. TMH is a really fun look at one of history's most ludicrous what ifs. Hey, could have happened. -=Charlie Pecoraro... full review
