Kat you really did a amazing job. Dee and I both feel like we learned so much more about you and various aspects of our communities involving homeless individuals and families. We will forever look at homelessness different and understand the power of what the change in our pockets can change in life’s. Thank you for sharing your deepest emotions and thoughts with conviction and compassion. ... full review

If I had the time to see one show again, this would undoubtedly be it. Kathryn puts on a spectacular poetic performance that is funny, raw, and moving. Her energy is astounding and engaging throughout the entirety of the show, portraying each character's experience as if she were reliving her own past lives. ... full review

Bravo! Kathryn Taylor Smith does an outstanding job of bringing awareness of homelessness in LA through a myriad of characters woven together beautifully! She morphes seamlessly from one character to the next evoking laughter, sighs and “Amens” throughout the show. Her performance really causes you to look within and outwards as you slowly begin to realize that our comparisons far outway our differences. I look forward to seeing even more developments and discussions that arise from works like this. We are all human and one decision away from our destiny. Please do check this show out if you get a chance. It’s food for the soul!... full review

As a successful two time solo artist myself I am quite critical of solo shows in Los Angeles but Kathryn is an exception. Inspired by Anna Deveare Smith she brings to light real stories based on her interviews and makes us view the homeless through a new lens. She manages to teach us and entertain us with an array of memorable and unforgettable characters. As playwright she has done the homework most don't bother to do and as an actor her performance is simply magnificent. Kudos to Kathryn! Welcome to the Solo World! And thank you for giving us serious food for thought that we will still be digesting well after the fact!... full review

Definitely a show everyone should see! Creative, honest, fun and very touching all at the same time. These are real stories and Kathryn did an exceptional job of becoming all of the different characters to tell each of their stories in such a beautiful way. She reminds us to have more compassion for the homeless and not be so quick to dismiss them and their journeys. Her talent, passion and presence are captivating and inspiring. ... full review

Thoroughly impressed! Kathy played multiple characters while utilizing multiple dialects, and moved from one to the other seamlessly. If I didn’t know better I’d have thought she had multiple personalities. I was completely amazed and would seriously consider seeing it again. It had humor, compassion and was very thought provoking at the same time. I will never look at a homeless person the same. Thank you, Kathy. Bravo!... full review
