Funny, Quirky, Imaginative, Great staging, Unfinished

See it if you like a wild ride. There's lots to enjoy here (characters, humor, acting, staging), but the great set-up is dropped and TCS falls apart.

Don't see it if you want a full story arc. 1st 2 parts are masterful, the last disappointing. Still, laughs thru-out. W cutting/shaping, TCS could be great.

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if A great cast of downtown icons (including David Greenspan) work very, very hard to pull drama off Aided by great set & staging but not to be

Don't see it if Harnetiaux's talent is definitely on display but only sporadically It's dense w/o being illuminating; has a feel of 'whimsy on steroids'

“A classic shaggy dog story. Or rather, shaggy bear...In its opening scenes, ‘Tin Cat Shoes’ may put you in mind of a stretched-out sketch...But Ms. Harnetiaux is following her own System, which involves dismantling our pathetic trust in all systems...With a lesser cast and design team the ingredients of ‘Tin Cat Shoes’ might not seem quite as fresh or tasty. But it’s hard to resist the eccentric top spin that these performers so happily put on their lines.”
