Hitlerhoff in Adelaide’s “Top 5 Theatre” of 2009

Posted in Uncategorized on 24 February, 2010 by hitlerhoff

“Few political satires would get away with this, but the twinning of the 80s glam TV Knight Rider and the most evil man in history was delivered with incredible punch and laugh out loud insight.”

Adelaide Theatre Guide – 4-star review of Hitlerhoff

Posted in media, publicity, reviews, shock and awe, Uncategorized on 15 March, 2009 by hitlerhoff

Review by Anthony Grzyb

Don’t hassle this ‘Hitlerhoff’! Directed by Erin Kelly, this play is filled with all the off-the-wall zaniness one might expect from a tale that fuses the lives of both David Hasselhoff and Adolf Hitler!

The character of Hitlerhoff, while not a direct representation of the aforementioned individuals, has much in common with them – right down to the desire of world domination, and red Speedos! Set in the fictional ‘Austria-lia’, one cannot help but get caught up in the post-modern hilarity of “Hitlerhoff”.

While not for all tastes, this black comedy written by Tom Doig is witty and satirical. But it is the performances that instantly grab one’s attention. Tobias Manderson-Galvin, in the role of Hitlerhoff, is galvanizing; he portrays both the troubled youngster and adult Hitlerhoff with fierce assurance, while also giving a fine madcap performance.

Fellow cast members, Georgina Andrews and Joel Davey, play Hitlerhoff’s parents. In addition, each engages in rapid-fire costume changes playing an assortment of entertaining characters without misfire, that Hitlerhoff meets along his journey.

Yet, “Hitlerhoff” is not simply a ‘flight of fancy’, rather it asks tough questions on our perception of contemporary power, and the power we all hold in society for good, evil or banality.

Special mention must go to the inventive video projection with sequences by Anto Skene and Puck Murphy that further the play thematically.

Hitlerhoff” gets under the skin and one can’t help but ponder the show’s meanings long into the night!

If you enjoy your theatre avant garde, or are a pop culture buff – don’t miss this memorable Fringe performance.

Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)

RIP IT UP magazine’s review of Hitlerhoff

Hitlerhoff, Queens Theatre, Tue Mar 10

Hitlerhoff, writer Tom Doig’s enigmatic fusing of pop culture hero David Hasselhoff and history’s greatest monster Adolf Hitler, is a theatre experience that is somewhat akin to a herd of charging rhinoceros. It’s loud, it’s constantly in your face, it’s more than a little bit evil and to top it off it’s also sickeningly hilarious. Tobias Manderson-Galvin, who plays the production’s titular hero, is relentlessly funny at times and soiled-underpants-scary at others, bringing an intensity to the role that such an over the top character begs for. Georgina Andrews and Joel Davey do not disappoint either, each of them breathing life into a ridiculous horde of characters throughout the production’s hour-long runtime. Hitlerhoff is offensive, sure, but it also features an unflinching and important message that’ll hit you like a verbal kick to the genitals. And call me a Commie thespian if you must, but I loved every second of it.
