Reviews
In to the Woods – Amanda Gunther: DCMTA
Nik Walker, doubling up as The Wolf and Cinderella’s Prince first slides onto the stage as the hungry wolf; a handsome but devilish character out to make dinner out of anyone he meets on the path in the woods. He is unctuous and exudes a level of sleaze worthy of his cause during “Hello, Little Girl,” flipping back and forth from a dark malicious solo in red light to an up-beat jazzy tune when singing along side Red Riding Hood. (Dana Steingold.) Walker then becomes the stunning and charming prince. His finest moment is a hysterical duet with his Princely Brother (Robert Lenzi) where the two bemoan their true feelings in “Agony.” This duet is absurd, the more ridiculous the claims the more serious the actors make them, creating a comical moment for all involved.
Miss Saigon – The Portland Daily Sun
Nik Walker (John) gave the show-stopping number of the evening with his powerhouse performance of "Bui-Doi." His fine acting, character transitions and relationships were clearly defined.
Miss Saigon – The Press Herald
Nik Walker provided a touch of soul as Chris' friend, John. Silence gripped the audience as he sang about the Vietnamese children fathered in the war in "Bui-Doi," while images of Vietnamese children flashed on a screen above the stage.
The Devil and Thomas Briggs – CultureFuture Blog

"Nik Walker, in addition to having written the play, plays two central characters; Cicero Briggs, the dead blues man who used to hold a city together, and Billy Bones, an earnest young deputy in the town. He plays both with a dangerous edge and genuine heart that drives home the uncertainty of where the play is going."

ARTiculation – Boston Globe

"Although the performers are clearly comfortable working together, they also celebrate their distinctly individual personalities. Nik Walker nearly brings down the house with his hilariously over-the-top "Devil Woman" and a brilliantly rhythmic name-dropping litany of poets through the ages."

The Boston Metro

"Even if young twenty-somethings aren’t your thing, Nik Walker will make you swoon. He’s got that rarely seen stage presence most actors would make a deal with the devil to have. And he’s got impressive vocal chops that’ll leave you wishing he’d finish that Tracy Chapman song he starts a couple of times in the show."

RENT @ Hangar – The Ithaca Journal

"It's a powerhouse ensemble, vocally distinguished. Some exceptional performances include Nik Walker's nuanced outsider, Benjamin Coffin III."
