Patricia Jane Collins (April 3, 1932 – March 21, 2021) was an American lighting designer.[1][2]


Collins made her Broadway debut with a 1976 revival of Threepenny Opera. Her additional New York City credits include Ain't Misbehavin', King of Hearts, I'm Not Rappaport, Execution of Justice, The Heidi Chronicles, Conversations with My Father, The Sisters Rosensweig, Proof, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and Doubt.

In 1986, Collins won the Tony Award for Best Lighting Design for I'm Not Rappaport[3] and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Lighting Design for Execution of Justice.

Pat Collins was also active with regional theaters such as Hartford Stage Company, Goodman Theater, McCarter Theater, Steppenwolf, Lincoln Center, Mark Taper Forum, Old Globe Theater and Ford’s Theater.[4]

"Good People"

In the production "Good People", Collins’ goal was to bring naturalism to the show. Collins was aware not only of the need to hear actors but also the need to see them speak. She said that the lighting was dictated by what scenic designer John Lee Beatty did with the sets, but her job went a little deeper than that. "It is really quite specific in its locations, and it is about trying to make you believe those locations that became my job as well as making sure that you heard because you could see those actors all of the time."[5]


Pat Collins was a Lighting Designer for all of the following productions:[6]
