“There is something to be said for a holy sound coming from a chorus of nuns and this sound is achieved with serenity during the “Preludium” at the top of the show by the four sisters of the Nonnberg Abbey. Sister Berthe (Maggie Leigh Walker) and [Sister Sophia] have superior voices that ring out with crystal clarity during “Maria.”  —DC Metro Theatre Arts

“The wonderful surprise in this production is the Latin chants and religious music sung by Maggie Walker as Sister Berthe, [Sister Margaretta, Sister Sophia, and Mother Abbess].”–Maryland Theatre Guide

“The nuns’ chorus — made up of ….and Maggie Leigh Walker (Sister Berthe) — blend their voices beautifully.”–Bay Weekly

“Easily the company’s biggest and most fun show of the season, Midtown hit this regional premiere out of the park with an amazingly talented cast that makes this hilarious tale of hefty heroine Tracy Turnblad the very definition of summer-time fun Actress Maggie Walker called winning the role of Tracy a dream come true and her earnest love for this character is evident from the moment she belts out the bubbly opening song “Good Morning Baltimore” to the show’s infectiously danceable finale “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”–The Coloradoan

‘Comfort and Joy’: Appearing in 1st Stage’s ‘Bat Boy:The Musical’: Part 2: Jimmy Mavrikes–“Everyone in this cast is bringing something completely different to the show. I would say we are a cast of strong individuals that work amazingly together. In this ensemble show, Farrell brings her gorgeous tones, Maggie’s vicious belt, Russell has amazing characterizations ranging from teenage boy to southern woman, Stephen brings his strong character voice work, Dani’s quick wit, and Katie, well she does look pretty hot with a mustache.”

DCMTA Review of Bat Boy–“Accompanying the flawed Edgar, is an ensemble of six actors playing a variety of roles from the town sheriff to a revivalist preacher and all of the denizens of this West Virginia town. The ensemble’s swift transformation between gender bending characters (sometimes in front of the audience) each actor creates unique personalities.”

Church Basement Ladies 2–“As an older woman, Walker is superb”
