THEA-MARIE PERKINS certified reviewer July 08, 2018
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

ANONYMOUS certified reviewer July 08, 2018
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
GLORIA GARAYUA certified reviewer June 26, 2018
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

PEERADA MEEMALAYATH certified reviewer June 21, 2018
What an incredible show with an poignant message. Kathryn did an amazing job of opening our eyes to the issue of homeless people and showcasing the humanity of each character. Everything was so good. The use of music, her movement and dance piece was powerful, the projections didn't feel unnecessary and never took away from Kathryn because she commands the stage like no other! Her versatility as an actor is incredible and her writing skills are just as strong. Congrats, girlie!!! ... full review
TENE CARTER certified reviewer June 20, 2018
Kathryn Taylor Smith under the direction of Zadia Ife brings the actual, true to life experiences of the homeless and the effects on the community. We each get to walk, “A Mile in their Shoes,” and take their journeys, so brilliantly expressed through Kathryn Taylor Smith’s portrayal of each character.... full review

I truly enjoyed this heart-warming show. Kathryn took very serious subjects related to homelessness reflected by various characters and added just enough humor to keep us interested and entertained. I wish my church members could see it since we are adding Skid Row as a campus to our ministries.... full review
