"CRITIC'S PICK! Director Wayne Kasserman and actors James Roday and Michael Weston make the most of the sly humor and subtle heartbreak in McKinley's intelligent work, enhanced by fine supporting turns from Amanda Detmer and Stefanie E. Frame... convincing and compelling."
- Les Spindle, Back Stage
"Uniquely unsettling... a shattering denouement... smartly-paced staging... Those familiar with Roday’s gonzo character on television’s “Psych” will find his quietly provocative performance a revelation" - F. Kathleen Foley, The Los Angeles Times
"Riotous laughs, hard hitting truths, brutally riveting... Takes your breath away,"
"Fast-paced, contemporary, and deliciously cruel."
"Michael Weston gives us a performance that is hilarious, brazenly cutting, and at times, unabashedly heartfelt."
-- Amber Cassell, BroadwayWorld.com
"GO! Weston and Roday give finely etched and contrasting performances, and Wayne Kasserman directs with a skillful but unobtrusive hand this merciless evisceration of whatever it means to have character."
- Neal Weaver, LA Weekly
"Intimate theatre at its edgy best!"
-- Candyce Columbus, examiner.com
"Where's the beef, the creative meat of a truly talented writer? He arrived late in my tour... Gabe McKinley writes a wittily languorous opening, but then his drama veers off into a scary, harrowing party... it's a good guess that "Extinction" will continue to be performed."
- Bob Hofler, Variety
"Mr. McKinley's play is smartly written, funny, and shocking. EXTINCTION is terrific."
-- Telly Davidson, the two-one-three
"Roday and Weston wring plenty of laughs and pathos from the expertly written dialogue... the direction is crisp and tight." -
- Sheryl Scarborough, SoCal
"WOW! Anyone in search of edgy, unexpected, quality theater can do no better than to catch Extinction."
