It broke my heart to hear the news that performances of SWEENEY TODD at 6th Street had been canceled due to the virus, but it was the right thing to do. There are others who have it worse off, and some that never opened at all.
"Director Patrick Nims brilliantly choreographs humans under the microscope. We are observing the intimate collapse of the U.S. middle class?economic, medical, and emotional. Nims and the great cast make it funny and touching, as they look at the grim neighborhood and feel their fate descending."
"'Company' at Novato Theater Company is nothing short of wonderful. Michelin three-star: 'Worth a special journey.' Terrific ensemble, a couple of standout performances, excellent work from top to bottom.
Perhaps the best thing about this cast is how they come together as an ensemble under the skilled hand of director Patrick Nims."
"There are many excellent aspects of this production. Most notably, the direction of Patrick Nims. Working on a very simple set (by Sam Transleau) with impressionistic projections that establish locations, Nims has staged this George M! with verve and dynamism. He has an artist's eye for composition, creating some lovely tableaux, most notably a Last Supper-esque scene at a boardinghouse where the Cohans lived during one of their stops on the vaudeville circuit. And once those tableaux break, Nims keeps the pace rocketing along.?
