   THE REVIEWS ARE IN......

Godspell at Ivoryton Playhouse

Josh Walker nearly steals the show with his charm, his intelligence, and his glorious reprise, on piano, of “Learn Your Lessons Well."

-Shoreline Times

Standing out are the excellent Josh Walker, who gets the second act started with a terrific reprise of 

"Learn Your Lessons Well," including accompanying himself on the piano. Shortly after, Walker scores singingthe lead in the full company number "We Beseech Thee."

-Talkin Broadway

Beauty and the Beast at Theatre By the Sea

 

 "Josh Walker, who plays Gaston's sycophantic sidekick, Lefou, to absolute perfection."

-BroadwayWorld

"Gaston’s so extreme, he’s a riot, even though he uses his diminutive sidekick, Josh Walker’s loveable Lefou, as a punching bag" 

-Providence Journal

"As Gaston’s sidekick, Josh is beaten up, thrown about and does more pratfalls than humanly possible, winning sustained laughter while doing so. His facial expressions are priceless, too. His comic timing is impeccable and he leads the chorus in “Gaston”
