Punishingly long, Indulgent, Relevant, Intelligent, Funny

See it if you like Daniel Kitson and want to hear an intelligent monologue about the stuff in our life. But it does become repetitive and was too long

Don't see it if you don't like monologues and talent that abuses the audience by telling you the show is 2hrs long and is still going strong at 2.5hrs. Read more

Daniel kitson's latest is a bizarre hodgepodge that may not reach the uninitiated, but is always fascinating

See it if you never miss a Daniel Kitson show and want to see what he's got cooked up this time.

Don't see it if you've never seen Kitson. This shouldn't be your first. It's rambling & tedious, but may still appeal to you. It's a one of a kind. Read more

See it if you are a Daniel Kitson fan and enjoy eccentric, idiosyncratic, clever humor.

‘Daniel Kitson Takes Inventory: An excursion into the Theater of Lists at St. Ann’s Warehouse proves to be both original and exasperating.

New York Magazine / Vulture

"Behind his woolly beard and unthreatening sweater, he’s a laser-focused master craftsman. In the tricky monologue 'Keep,' he’s so delighted by the perfection of his own herringbone carpentry that he turns the piece around to show us the back.

"Just like the central character, played most ingeniously by Daniel Kitson, who might, honestly, be the oddest, funniest, and whip-smartiest comic performer that I have seen in a long long time, there is just so much to say and so little time."
