It’s been seven years since we launched the Walker Blogs, and with the release of our new homepage back in December we thought it was finally time for a refresh. You’ll notice that the design has changed to align with our new website, and we’ve used the opportunity to rebrand each of our core blogs, focus our offerings, and give readers a better sense of what they’ll find inside. Don’t worry though, the name might have changed, but this is still the blog of the Performing Arts department. And as such, we remain committed to bringing you views of Walker performance and performers, both onstage and backstage, plus the space for community discussion through our ongoing series of overnight reviews penned by Twin Cities artists and critics. We hope you like the new look and come back to see what we’re up to!
