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

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

The story line was a perfect and well-balanced mix of empathy and humor. Homelessness and the under served has always been a passion project for Katt and it really shows in her work. The transitions between the multiple characters were flawless and engaging. The attention to detail for each was only matched by her ability to convey the message in their stories.... full review

Kathryn has the power and versatility to keep you captivated throughout her very moving show. She inhabited the characters so much that she was barely recognizable. Her depth and emotion made you empathize with them to their core. I’ve been inspired and my heart is better for having seen this show. Highly recommended. ... full review

Kathryn Smith does a beautiful job taking on multiple characters, their physicalities, and voices! The content of this show is serious but Kathryn does a nice job threading in some humor. Loved how she used a variety of media. She uses a projector, overhead music through the speakers, a live voice from backstage, and she herself sings, and dances, and mimes! She is spectacular and brings a very important subject to the awareness of sold out houses!... full review

So, I planned all week to go see Kathryn in her one woman show at the @hollywoodfringe festival, A Mile in my Shoes because I wanted to see Kat do her thang AND she was presenting a subject dear to my heart "homelessness".I didn't know what to expect,had some thoughts of what it might be BUT WHAT I GOT was this BRILLIANT, ENTHRALLING show! It ministered,it educated,it touched me,it made me laugh, it showcased a researched,focused & passionate actress giving voice to 'humans' living on the streets of L.A. - based on real stories.Righfully so it has been extended.She will be performing July 7th & 8th.The show is only $10!... full review
