The Walton Arts Center (WAC) recently wrapped up the P&G Broadway Series with Fiddler on the Roof, but fans have one more chance to see a Broadway show this season.

  • Exclusive: "A Chorus Line" will be at the WAC for a four-show run June 24-26 before launching an Asian tour. The performances in Northwest Arkansas are the only opportunities to see this new tour in the United States.
  • Iconic: "A Chorus Line" is the musical for "everyone who's ever had a dream and put it on the line." The show first debuted in 1975, and the iconic score features classics such as "What I Did for Love," "One," "I Hope I Get It," and more.

NWA Daily

Two Northwest Arkansas businesses have recently earned their places on the Fortune 500 list for the 10th consecutive year. 

  • J.B. Hunt: J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. ranked #311 on the 2022 list, moving up four spots from its position last year. The president and chief executive officer at J.B. Hunt said the ranking is a "testament to the culture of innovation and excellence we strive for at J.B. Hunt."
  • Walmart: This year, Walmart extended its streak at the #1 spot on the list after successfully navigating a challenging year in 2021. With its expanded e-commerce offerings, curbside pick-up, in-home delivery services, and driverless vehicle and drone testing, it's not hard to see why Walmart is still at the top.
