From the venue:

We are everyday men and women. We struggle. We survive. We find hope amidst chaos. We piece words together. With all the negative stereotype images and talk, we all need something different.

In My Shoes is a storytelling event produced by Cathy Reinking that cuts through the day to day defenses and facades, to get to the soul of the human being inside. By giving you a glimpse of the world In My Shoes, we discover how close and connected we truly are. Join us in a heartfelt, joyous evening of diverse voices and ages.


Adam is returning to Atlanta (from New York City) to share his very special one-person show in its entirety - “FANATICAL OPTIMISM”

If you are a Baby Boomer you definitely don’t want to miss this! And if you aren’t, you’ll learn how all this madness in this country started.

DAVE DEUTSCHLE - who gave us a glimpse at his experience in Desert Storm during the last In My Shoes Stories - will perform his one person show in its entirety. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe, you’ll be moved.

You’ll also experience a STAGED READING of a new Short Script written by Darryl Dillard - EXTRA EXTRA, which takes place in a (you guessed it) holding tank for Extras on a big film production. You’ll laugh (and probably not cry). As they often say with content - “Based On A True Story” :-) (Cast to be announced)

Coming back to In My Shoes Stories are:

— Tetra Lloyd
— Adam LaBorde
— Aleks Midnight
— Adriane Benson
— Terri Nicole
— LAQUANDA and her “Lazy Love Candles”


“Left me speechless and that’s hard to do.” - Chris Short, Atlanta

“Between tears and laughter, I found it hard to catch my breath.” - Susie England, Atlanta.

“So unique and refreshing. Please do it again.” - Dwayne Collins, Atlanta

“As the latest session of In my Shoes was winding down, I was overwhelmed with how much I had enjoyed this latest experience. The stories, the not-your-Mother’s poetry, the live music, the comedy and assortment of wonderfully open and delightful performers and audience filled my soul. There is no other way to describe it….over the course of a few hours I laughed, cried, empathized, related and digested a veritable feast for my soul.” - Virginia Kirby, Peachtree City, GA
