I enjoyed the evening and was moved by the story but found it flawed as a piece of theater. First, the events of the main character's life were presented like a list of events: first this happened, then this happened, next this happened, etc. There were so many events that she was not able to get into any of them in depth, and all the characters could be no more than stereotypes even herself. Second, I didn't really see that the shoes added to the story. They just seemed a gimmicky device. Finally, if I were the author, I might have hired a better actress to play me. I thought her acting skills were a bit limited. She had maybe two or three notes. And for all the characters and emotions she was playing, she needed more.
Told through sixteen pairs of shoes, Someone's Somebody chronicles the journey of Regina Louise, who, at the age of 11, navigates her way through 30 foster homes. This is a searing visit into a Dickensian world fraught with danger and intrigue. By story's end in a hotel room in New York City, the story shows that no amount of love given to a child is ever wasted.
