Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
(Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, 2017)

“The Tragedians … mug, enact and prance delightfully upon the Player’s (a masterful, handsome basso fundo Christopher Walsh) command.” – Regina Belt-Daniels, Northwest Herald

The Hammer Trinity (The House Theatre of Chicago, 2015)

“Their language, though poetical and richer, is not so mired in antiquity and pomposity; full of vibrant jokes (most expertly pitched by Casper’s uncle Abraham Pride, the magnificent Christopher M Walsh)” – Ben Kemper, Chicago Theatre Review

“Christopher Walsh (no relation) hysterically responds with his signature perfect comedic timing. Walsh repeatedly with a gesture or one word cracks the audience up.” – Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh

“Christopher M. Walsh also gives a fun, commanding performance, continued from “The Iron Stag King,” as Casper’s curmudgeonly uncle, Abraham Pride.” – Alex Huntsberger, Newcity Stage

Season on the Line (The House Theatre of Chicago, 2014)

“Christopher M. Walsh makes the most of his scant dialogue and even more from his numerous silences as Joao, the surly, expatriate Technical Director and ‘whaling expert.'” – Alex Huntsberger, Newcity Stage

“Christopher M. Walsh is wonderful as the truculent tech director, whose passion is evident in his work.” – Kerstin Broockmann, Chicago Stage Standard

“I thought that Joao (Christopher M. Walsh) was really funny because he had all these different hand signs and he was so serious about them. It was just so funny.” – Ada Grey, Ada Grey Reviews for You

Monstrous Regiment (Lifeline Theatre, 2014)

“Walsh as Sergeant Jackrum … is so much more than the ‘Sarge’ stereotype. He is simultaneously a ruthless killer, a beleaguered old soldier and a caring leader; not an easy character, but Walsh rises to the occasion in the most natural performance of the show, one that gives it real soul.” – Kevin Thomas, Time Out Chicago

“Walsh brings multiple layers of anger and vulnerability to Jackrum.” – Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

“Walsh was simply born to play Jackrum: with his cadaverous deadpan, nuanced earnestness as he tries to see ‘his little lads’ safe through the war, and the occasional flutters of impish joy, as he proves himself yet again to be a man full of surprises.” – Ben Kemper, Chicago Theatre Review

“Christopher M. Walsh supplies unexpected nuance and a large measure of heart as the squad’s tough, genial NCO.” – Tony Adler, Chicago Reader

“Leading the untrained, poorly outfitted regiment is the gruff, battle-hardened, unfailingly decent Sgt. Jackrum, played with equal parts compassion and ruthlessness by Christopher M. Walsh. Walsh brings real pathos.” – Barbara Vitello, Daily Herald

Street Justice: Condition Red (Factory Theater, 2013)

“As the British villain Blade, Christopher Walsh deserves some sort of award for best evil laugh.” – Oliver Sava, Time Out Chicago

The Woman In White (Lifeline Theatre, 2012)

“Bringing his signature scene-stealing hilarity, Christopher M. Walsh plays haughty and cruel with mustache twirling elegance.” – Katy Walsh, Chicago Theatre Beat

“As the evil, bombastic Count Fosco, Christopher M. Walsh – a Peter Ustinov look-alike – nearly steals show with his finely delivered, uninterrupted speeches. In a story with as many layers as the preverbal onion, Walsh’s skill at varied – often quite humorous – presentations prevent the plot from degenerating into more tell than show. There is plenty of show, but the telling – which covers time lapses and behind-the-scenes episodes – skillfully moves the complicated story along.” – Beverly Friend, Ph.D., Chicago Critic
