  • A Comedy of the American Nightmare

    05 September 2019

    We live in fearful times. Regardless of your politics, economic status, or religious beliefs, I think you’ll agree that since 9/11/2001, life in America has felt increasingly tenuous, difficult and dangerous. But that does not mean that there has been any lack of joy, hope and love.

    REVIEWS:   The Humans Novato Theater Company   "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."    - Barry Horwitz - Theatris
  • A Word About Community Theater

    28 August 2019

    It is a tremendous honor to open the Novato Theater Company’s 100th season with THE HUMANS. The staying power of community theater is a testament to our need, as human beings, to tell stories. We learn from stories, we bond through stories, we escape through stories.

REVIEWS:
NOVATO THEATER COMPANYCompany 1

"'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."

- Patrick Thomas, Talking Broadway
REVIEWS:
6th Street PlayhouseGeorge M 1

"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.”
