"An absolute Highlight is Esther Kuhn"
Simon Verhoeven at the Premiere of "Welcome to Germany"
"Esther Kuhn as Lady Milford is compassionate yet calculating, but shows inner greatness at the end of the play. She gives the character her very personal note."
"And it is this tone that is fascinating with Esther Kuhn. Kuhn plays kittenish, eyes round as a ball, charmingly. She almost never tries to copy the Marilyn sound, she always succeeds in showing the artificiality of the character that Norma Jean has established for herself, in telling her loneliness, her hopelessness. [...] Kuhn could sing more, much more, she can do it well. At the end Kuhn's voice comes from tape. "I'm through with love."... And it is so sadly, sadly beautiful."
"Esther Kuhn plays Marilyn Monroe and speaks the recorded tapes of hers. And the actress does it very convincingly. The mind of Marylin Monroe in particular is well worked out. A one-woman-show that, throughout its approx. 70 minutes, never became long-winded – but absolutely worth seeing instead, not only for Monroe fans."
"Glorious how Esther Kuhn, as a clumsy, pop-eyed secretary with a giggle that makes her entire nose curl and expires in snoring noises, reaps enthusiastic laughs from the audience."
"Esther Kuhn as Dorothy acts in a small, colorful checkered dress and plays clearly as well as consistently, without any embarrassingly fake small girl charm. Not less well is her..."
"The play is bejeweled by two fortunately cast supporting roles: Esther Kuhn plays a wallflower of a secretary who is able to gloriously look - and laugh - "wallflowerly"."
