"Every detail tumbled and turned. Confident, fresh and transfixing. Gee, I'm feeling good about the future of American theater!"
-- Livingston Taylor
"When the play [Extinction] ended, I asked myself, 'When is the next episode? I'm ready to binge-watch a show about these characters.' The writing the staging and the acting all came together for a dramatic and compelling evening in the theatre."
-- Alec Baldwin
“Raw and uncompromising!”
-- Steve Hamilton
“[Extinction is] A riveting production of an important play. Ass-kicking performances from a young ensemble company of actors.”
-- Lyle Kessler
"'Leviticus' is a fascinating combination of humor, pain, and deliciously irreverent playwriting, acting and directing that I think I have ever seen. I laughed my ass off!"
-- Margaret Ladd
