The School for Scandal - Red Bull Theater (New York)
...the protean Ben Mehl, who plays four different servants and steals the scene as every single one.
-Jil Picariello, ZEALnyc
Playing servants to four separate masters, Ben Mehl is unrecognizable in each of his additional appearances, but is able to silently comment on the goings on as each.
-Victor Gluck, TheaterScene.net
Ben Mehl is a steady delight as four wildly different manservants, each with a different accent and attitude.
-David Barbour, Lighting and Sound America
Special mention goes to Ben Mehl, who memorably plays four (!) servants, accompanied by assorted accents. He has great comedic timing
-Shani R. Friedman, Theasy.com
Quadruple-cast in the small roles of Rufus, William, Hastings, and Trip, Ben Mehl manages to find a different delightful quirk for each servant.
-Chloe Edmonson, Off Off Online
Ben Mehl shine(s) as he plays four separate servants, roles that would otherwise fade into the woodwork if they hadn't been so fine-tuned.
-Howard Miller, Upstage-Downstage
The Crucible - Cleveland Playhouse
Watching Mehl weave through Reverend Hale’s soul-battle is epic
-Kate Miller, Examiner.com
Ben Mehl...creates in Reverend John Hale, a character whose gradual transition from accuser to denier is completely believable.
-Roy Berko, COOL Cleveland
At The Table - Faultline Theatre, HERE (New York)
...the eight actors are commendably believable... Craig Wesley Divino, Ben Mehl and the remarkable Rachel Christopher make especially strong impressions.
-Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
Pericles, Prince of Tyre - The Public Theater (New York)
Ben Mehl is particularly appealing... he offers a twinkle in his eye and an air of menace in his characters—sometimes at the same time.
- Judd Hollander, The Epoch Times
Yentl - Cleveland Play House
Avigdor…played by an arresting Ben Mehl, his masculine, hangdog face a sharp counterpoint to Gibel's softness.
Mehl happily bounces across the set, naked and unafraid
- Andrea Simakis, The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)
Troublemaker - Berkeley Repertory Theatre
Matt Bradley and Ben Mehl are pricelessly dim-witted and sensitive
- Sam Hurwitt, KQED Public Media for Northern CA
The Law of Return - 4th Street Theatre (New York)
Mehl’s performance as Pollard is...brilliant, electric and charmingly subversive
- David Levesley, Washington Jewish Week
Mehl endows his performance with the messianic fervor of a true believer. Every shift of the eye and inflection of the voice suggests a man playing for the cameras, living in his own private Robert Ludlum film.
- Zachary Stewart, Theater Mania
Ben Mehl captures Pollard’s narcissism and arrogance as well as his deep insecurity in a twitchy, intense performance
- Miriam Rinn, Jewish Standard
Mehl's performance is alive, capturing the agony and euphoria he feels for both countries.
- Aviva Woolf, Stage Buddy
Habit - PS122/Crossing the Line (New York)
The curiously snide, menacing Doug (well played, in the cast I saw today, by shark-eyed Ben Mehl)
- Eva Yaa Asantewaa, InfiniteBody
Henry V - Two River Theater
Michael Genet stands out as the stalwart Exeter…and Ben Mehl as a very foppish Dauphin
- Ruth Ross, NJ Arts Maven
Victor Frange Presents Gas - Incubator Arts Project (New York)
Love's Labour's Lost - Chautauqua Theatre Company
Benjamin Mehl of NYU cashes in with his unbridled approach to broadly comical and wonderfully memorable Don Adriano de Armado
- Anthony Chase, Artvoice Daily (Buffalo)
King Lear - Driftwood Theatre (Toronto)
King of France, given more personality by Benjamin Mehl than in other productions I’ve seen, makes a mark. Mehl’s equally adept as the snippy, cowardly Oswald
- Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine (Toronto)
