"Walters plays it with heart and feeling that packs an emotional wallop..."

                        -Jay Handlemen, Sarasota Herald Tribune

...one of the most cohesive performances I’ve seen to date. And if my word alone doesn’t convince then the audience’s howls and twice standing ovation might.
— Kelsey Ferguson, Idle Class Magazine
