Pat Collins has also been 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.
In the production "Good People", Pat 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 says 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."
