"Hilarious and heart-wrenching...Christine Renee Miller, the author and performer, is charming, witty, and exuberant...Miller's writing has the perfect balance of humor and depth, all rooted in a strong sense of truth. Miller’s experiences are unique and yet entirely relatable. The humor is unforced, and her comfort on stage is apparent from the first moment...Miller is stunningly believable...It's a beautiful story told by a magnificent actress, and a piece that I am unlikely to forget."

"Directed by Andrea Dantas, Miller’s performance is astounding. She seamlessly transitions between characters, embodying each role she portrays with graceful shifts...Miller’s writing is equally impressive, delivering at times hilarious and at times tragic views of what it’s like to live in New York, to give in to the crowd, and deal with the non-stop problems that the city throws at her...Miller’s play allows the audience to reflect on their own experiences in the city."

"'Such Nice Shoes' may be a solo show but, thanks to Miller’s creativity and talent, there are more characters than can be counted...Miller tackles issues from balancing stress to racism to breast cancer, with a Tolstoyan twist thrown in to prove that neither life nor this narrative are predictable...It is Miller’s portrayal of New York City itself that stands out the most...It’s full of heart and soul, and her impressions are so lively that they practically have minds of their own."

"Watching a day in the life of Christine Renee Miller actually made me feel grateful for the life I have and how important it is for us to use this platform to share our stories...Miller magnificently and smoothly transitions through no less than 10 characters that she encounters in one day...Director Andrea Dantas creatively and poignantly questions us: 'Does New York chew us up and spits us out and how do we handle the outcome?'

"The material doesn’t cover that much new ground, and Miller is not the first writer/performer to portray dozens of characters in rapid-fire succession...Miller’s delivery is always fresh, and there’s a lot of heart in her depictions...Under the direction of Andrea Dantas, Miller navigates the space effectively...'Such Nice Shoes' succeeds because we all understand what it means to struggle, to survive and to seek happiness in the city that never sleeps, let alone rests."
