Insipid, Fluffy, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if If you want a show that is experimental theater and brings feelings about a persons life i to it.

Don't see it if If you want a more polished show. This one gets loud with its video.

Heartfelt, Insufficiently dramatic, Stand-up, Therapeutic, Solo

See it if you would like to see an engaging performer use an elaborate stand-up routine as personal therapy.

Don't see it if you are looking for drama. Read more

Exeunt Magazine
April 10th, 2019

"As a child to a lost parent, who dealt with countless other losses between the ages of seven and seventeen, and as someone whose artistic life has in large part been devoted to explorations of extended grief, I have to ask, 'What the fuck?' This show made me angry. Really, truly, madly, deeply. Furiously. While I understand the impulse to make a show where you finally get to say those lifelong unsaids that you never got to scream, I see so much more strength in letting sleeping dogs lie."

March 31st, 2019

"An off-putting moment gives a taste of the uncomfortable candor and strained humor of the hour-long play...There are little skits and parodies that Kim is presumably presenting to her improv class...I found none of the jokes and routines funny. I realize some were meant to reflect Kim’s indirect efforts to come to terms with her father, but they weren’t effective...There were moments, however, that suggested the powerful play that Katzberg could have fashioned."
