columbinus at 1st Stage

Dir. Alex Levy & Juan Francisco Villa

“Joy’s slumping posture and hangdog look make Klebold a vividly unnerving presence, but the actor also achieves pathos”

“Joy… shows us [a] complicated, multifaceted person. Charm and lies, hurt and wrath, and finally their maniacal glee over their ghastly commitment to carry out their plan.”

Pamela Roberts, Broadway World


“one of the strongest performances comes from the actor who spends the least time onstage… Those halting moments he spends shares with Susan Rhea are the most tear-jerking but also the most sincere.”

“As the youngest of the group, Mr. Joy fills the space with an infectious energy that often helps to buoy the show when pacing drags.”

Rabbit Hole at Keegan Theatre

Dir. Kerry Rambow

“Patrick Joy radiates affecting earnestness and hesitancy. In a quietly intense monologue that voices a letter Jason is sending to the Corbetts, the boy sits very straight on the edge of the stage, looking resolute, vulnerable and a little waifish, his hands folded in his lap; every now and then, his hands break free and flutter helplessly, before he joins them back into a clasp.”

Celia Wren, Washington Post


“…has a monologue about his first time that in Joy’s delivery is achingly beautiful.”

John Stoltenberg, DC Metro Theater Arts

“Patrick Joy… exudes the innocence of a young man who knows what he has to do, but who is as yet untouched by the bloody madness of his clan.”
