How does one review Beckett? I always think of him like Shakespeare - he's one of those writers you simply aren't allowed to disagree with.  Normally, in my stubbornness I will find any reason to be a devil's advocate in conversations about greatly respected playwrights like Shakespeare.  However, Beckett - especially in this play - isn't asking for the audience's opinion or opening the floor for discussion; he is letting Krapp tell his story to us.  But even Krapp isn't allowed to speak for himself, and it is with that choice that Beckett lures audiences to see this play whenever it is put on.  Everyone aims to "find themselves", Krapp does it by listening to his tapes, the rest of us go to therapy; but we all want to explain ourselves and tell our story.  Beckett gives Krapp - a man we would all probably pass on the street without a second thought - the ability to do this, and as an audience we respect it. The details of the story don't even matter.  I recommend this play highly, and if you ever want to see great acting, go and see this play done by any great older actor; Krapp is the older actor's Hamlet.
