"Dominique Fishback, Pernell Walker,and Jamie Neumann are standouts among the group of actresses playing The Deuce’s working girls. They’re keenly tuned in to what the show is trying to do, locating and illustrating the fears and wants and shaded motives in characters that are often two-dimensionally rendered on screen."- Vanity Fair
Great reviews of Dolphins And Sharks!
Theatre Review: ‘Dolphins and Sharks’ at Bank Street Theatre By: Jacquelyn Clair
"Pernell Walker as Isabel is hilarious and heartbreaking and defiant and desperate, all rolled into one. The story pivots around her and she commands our attention with her flawless performance and impressive emotional range".
"Stellar 'Dolphins and Sharks' Pits the Powerless Against One Other"By Miriam Felton Dansky
"The ensemble cast is excellent, imbuing their characters with sympathetic detail."
"James Anthony Tyler exposes the harsh realities of the service sector in his new drama."
"The production benefits from excellent performances: Walker is razor-sharp as Isabel, dispensing deadly shade with maximum efficiency. Her performance is so sympathetic that we come to see her resentment as justified, even if we recognize it as counterproductive."

MY petition in support of Jesse Williams is quoted in USA TODAY!

Walker denied Smith's claim that Williams' words were hate speech. "Jesse's speech is an eloquent and passionate call to action against countless unarmed African Americans being murdered at the hands of Police across America," Walker wrote. "It is a beautiful demonstration and celebration of his 1st amendment right of free speech."
