REVIEWS

SHEEPDOG

(Oldcastle Theater: Bennington, VT 2022)

“An impressive aspect was Trimm’s ability to cut through the societal themes of the story. He was able to deftly weave his character’s feelings of love with his committed individualism, and was most persuasive in demonstrating his inner struggle.”

- The Bennington Banner

 

“Michael Patrick Trimm shows us a man caught in a trap that he has laid for himself, a trap he cannot escape so he works his way deeper into it with every statement he makes... Trimm’s confrontation with his character’s convictions is very well-played and he engages our sympathies with every declaration.”

- The Berkshire Edge

"Sheepdog is superbly directed by Kirk Jackson with phenomenal performances by Ravin Patterson and Michael Patrick Trimm.. Her partner, Ryan, is given a most winning performance by Michael Patrick Trimm which is crucial to the play’s stakes."

- Nippertown.com

"Trimm's Ryan carries a kind of childlike innocence, a young man's unguarded enthusiasm."

- The Berkshire Eagle

A FEW GOOD MEN

(Pittsburgh Public Theater: Pittsburgh, PA 2019)

"Michael Patrick Trimm is heartbreakingly sympathetic as the dedicated and naïve Downey, and his gifted, subtle performance serves as an emotional anchor throughout the play. Both Trimm and Kearney transform characters that could be easily usurped by the story in which they exist." 

- PghintheRound

"Michael Patrick Trimm is properly pitiable as Downey, the bewildered follower."

- Pittsburgh Post Gazette

"Naive and boyish, Trimm's presentation of Downey was spot on. Downey is a follower and conditioned to take orders. It’s heartbreaking to watch this young man crumble when left to answer on his own."

THE ILLUSTRIOUS INVALID

(Kinetic Theatre: Pittsburgh, PA 2022)

"...the troupe’s aspiring leading man (Michael Patrick Trimm, showing his comedy chops), who is courting Moliere’s wife and wants to take over for him onstage as well.

- OnStagePittsburgh

"Baron (Michael Patrick Trimm), is a brash and boyish satyr, motivated as much by concupiscence as he is by acting in the theater.

- PittsburghOwlScribe

"the cast, mostly veterans of the Pittsburgh stage, produces sharp comedic timing."

RAGING SKILLET

(Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theatre: Wellfleet, MA 2018)

- The PTownie

Michael Patrick Trimm was superb in his many iterations from DJ to prep cook to ancillary characters.

THE NEW SINCERITY

(New Wave Theater Collective: New York, NY 2017)

Ingenious... Really, a show well done. Credit must go to Olivia Rose Barresi and Michael Patrick Trimm for a very entertaining and perfectly constructed performance” 

- BWW Review

"This show is the ideal mix of what it means to be passionate about something in this world, and the less revealed state of those who strive to believe in that something. It is a masterful show of desire in all its truest forms.
