My impression of the show was that I was struck by the rich content, range and depth of the characters, humor, devastation, empathetic portrayals and sheer talent poured into this creation. ... full review

Kathryn Taylor Smiths' compassionate view of homelessness will touch the heart of all. Based on real life events of love and loss in America she unfolds issues of real people down on their luck, mentally ill, and heart broken; yet fighting to stay alive. Smith combines historical events told through the images of shoes and who wore them; amazed at their life or the life they use to have. ... full review

CHUCK DOBBS certified reviewer June 04, 2018
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

The actor absolutely lights up the stage - so diverse in her characterizations. You can’t take your eyes off of her! She dives deeply into the emotions of each character and tugs on the heartstrings of the audience. The intimate space broadens the emotional intensity. She seamlessly transitions between characters, taking the time to embody each one through unique physicalizations. And the dialogue is riveting - pure poetry. ... full review
ALICIA LARA certified reviewer June 09, 2018
This one person show kept me interested the whole time. Actress Kathryn Taylor-Smith brought to life back stories of those experiencing homelessness, a subject that is greatly affecting our society. Hopefully after seeing this show one has more empathy towards those living on our streets, instead of annoyance at how your neighborhoods are being affected. The humanity behind the masses is spotlighted. I think we could all use a more empathetic view. The timing is spot on for this show and it's well worth seeing. ... full review
GREGOR MANNS certified reviewer June 10, 2018
I am a theater snob, I can only enjoy well written and beautifully performed pieces on stage, and this show did not disappoint! I felt like I was back in New York watching greats like Anna Deavere Smith, Phylicia Rashad, or S. Epatha Merkerson. This was well developed, rehearsed, and executed with great courage, wisdom, and pride. The multifaceted-characters were real and honest. And the actress was both vulnerable and strong when needed. I left feeling like I robbed them of a higher ticket price!... full review
