Patrick Byrnes

Chicago Actor.

Home: Welcome

Who Am I?

[he/him/his] I grew up on the South side of Chicago in the neighborhood of Beverly, which is mostly known for Chicago's South Side Irish Parade. I came from a family that was 5+ generations of firefighters, but frankly I wanted to be a Power Ranger
...or Timmy in Jurassic Park. So I chose to become an actor.

If you need a friendly Dad or an inspiring English teacher with a little quirk, I'm your guy. But if I had my druthers I'd like to be part of your stories often untold: non-nuclear families, Black Joy and Triumph, Gen Z's actual experience in today's culture, things that can be added to the Netflix category "Movies Featuring a Strong Female Lead", Trans love. What else ya got? I don't think the human imagination has yet to come up with all it can!

I take pride in my kindness and professionalism (thanks, Midwestern mom!). It's important to me that I'm a contributing role in an equitable, creative environment. I love to work with truly collaborative leaders with diverse voices.

I love to prepare. I love organization. I vibe with spreadsheets and read the fine print, but I love any opportunity to dive in and get my hands dirty. 

Let's work together!

A Little Night Music

Patrick will be playing Fredrik Egerman in Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music at Theo Ubique in Evanston, May 24 - July 14.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick
Suggested by a Film by Ingmar Bergman
Originally Produced and Directed on Broadway by Harold Prince


Directed by L. Walter Stearns
Music Directed by Eugene Dizon
Choreographed by Brenda Didier

Adapted from the celebrated Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music follows actress Desirée Armfeldt, the affairs she is entangled in, and the men who love her. When everyone gathers at the country estate of her mother, new romances and second chances bloom in surprising ways. Full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire, this comedy for adults is most noted for introducing the standard “Send in the Clowns.” Led by a multi Jeff Award-winning Creative Team and featuring celebrated Chicago artists Honey West as Madame Armfedlt and Colette Todd as Desirée Armfeldt, this is a not-to-be-missed production.

'Casa Valentina' at Pride Films and Plays
August 22 - September 29, 2019

"Byrnes is particularly winning in his sort-of-dual role; his businessman George bounds onstage with big Fred MacMurray energy, only to soften before our eyes as he sits down at his makeup table to become Valentina."
- Kris Vire, Chicago Sun-Times

"...excellent performances in work by Patrick Byrnes..."
- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"beautifully acted..." " assertion that accepting the vastness of sex and gender will always be impossible within the confines of the fickle state."
- KT Hawbaker, Chicago Reader

"The ensemble cast is beautifully led by Patrick Byrnes, as George/Valentina. Every aspect of this story revolves around his character. Byrnes captures the style and subtle nuances and mannerisms of the perfect hostess. He creates the consummate lady of the early 1960’s. With Valentina’s simmering smile and beguiling beveling, Mr. Byrnes brings to mind lovely Donna Reed, Jane Wyatt or Barbara Billingsley..."
- Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
