THEATER

CABARET: SECReT THEATRE, LONG ISLAND CITY, NY

  • "But the real highlight is Walker as Sally Bowles. [...] her execution of the eleven o'clock title number was a heart-stopping experience." - TheaterMania

  • "Walker is a strong, exciting presence as Sally. Her Wednesday Addams-esque characterization separates her from other Sallys I’ve seen, and she brings the right amount of humor, pathos, delusion, and vulnerability to the role [...] Her performance anchors the production." - Theatre Is Easy

  • "Natalie Walker gives us a tightly wound, intensely tragic Sally Bowles, thoroughly conceived and building to a wrenching performance of the title song at the climax of the show. [...] Sally’s half-crazed, hysterical (not in the funny sense) 'Cabaret' is one of the most seething musical-theater numbers I’ve seen in a long time, as she almost literally falls apart on the Kit Kat Club stage." - BlogCritics

BUZZ: SYNAPSE PRODUCTIONS/TOM AND SASHA'S LOFT, BROOKLYN, NY

  • "...the dinner scene, by far the most compelling part of the play – with Melanie (played by Natalie Walker, who had excellent comic timing) providing a fine inane counterpoint to her date Tom’s financial gobbledygook" - NY Theater Now

  • "The highlight of the evening is a deliciously painful double dinner date. Unlike our progressive protagonists, Dan and Melanie are clownish foils. Melanie (Natalie Walker) throws out awkward missed-the-point one-liners, and Dan (Gianmarco Soresi) channels his inner wall street jerk" - New York Theatre Review

LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS: Hangar theatre, ithaca, ny

  • "Jesse Bush’s direction of Neil Simon’s Last of the Red Hot Lovers (June) uncovered unseen gold in what had been dismissed as one the gagmeister’s lesser efforts. Not only was there more laughter, but more depth... Natalie Walker, the spoof Playboy playmate, steals the show." - Syracuse New Times

  • "The goofy, free-spirited Bobbi shocks Barney into inaction with her stream-of-consciousness ramblings that involve everything from drug use to kidnapping. Walker's comic portrayal of the wide-eyed, ditzy blonde brings new meaning to the definition of "air head". - Syracuse Post Standard

  • "The overt, infantile, yet available sexuality of Bobbi Michele, a nightclub singer between gigs, looks like a welcome change. In one of Simon’s greatest entrances, she coltishly gambols down the set so she can flutter the hem of her miniskirt and attract the cool drafts from the air conditioner underneath. She’s reckless, and also guileless... While all four players are in top form, the crowd-pleasing riotousness of Natalie Walker’s performance as Bobbi Michele wins her a resounding ovation at her exit." - Syracuse New Times
  • "Bobbi is the delicious fluff in-between: a paranoid, loopy, delightfully naïve habitué of the flower people generation. Walker gives her a gushing exterior with sudden starts and stops that wind you up in her slightly deranged reality. The pot scene between her and Gelber is priceless... this sketch is the most liberating and laugh-filled." - The Ithaca Times
  • "Bobbi Michele, skillfully portrayed by Natalie Walker, is the second visitor to the pristine apartment, where she manages to wreak her own particular brand of havoc." - Tompkins Weekly

THEATER GEEk: the real life drama of a summer at stagedoor manor

  • "...it is the supporting characters who often steal the show, like the brilliant and intimidating Natalie Walker..." - TheaterMania (FUN FACT: in addition to being a "supporting character" in a book, I am also allegedly a real person)

  • "'He was my first Stagedoor hookup,' Natalie Walker (’05-’09) said of a former crush. 'It was very forbidden, because we were in Tommy, and I was the Acid Queen and he was Captain Walker.' Someone shushed them—there was a lecture in the next room. 'Stagedoor people don’t know quiet,' Walker said. Then everyone exchanged a round of hugs, as if it were the last day of camp." - The New Yorker
