"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."

"Director Patrick Nims may be new to Oregon, but Silent Sky is ample proof that his impressive Bay area resume is much more than hype."

"delightfully fun, staged with comic gusto by director Patrick Nims."

"Director Patrick Nims has cast well for this production. The journey that Lizzy takes from her initial belief that she’s destined to live the life of an “old maid” is superbly handled in this rather sweet production."
"a story about perseverance and personal growth told really well by a talented ensemble."
- Harry Duke, Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle

"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.”
- Patrick Thomas, Talking Broadway

"'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."
