News   Extinction, with Roday and Weston, Begins New York Run Feb. 13 Gabe McKinley's drama Extinction, starring James Roday and Michael Weston, begins previews Off-Broadway Feb. 13 at the Cherry Lane Theatre.

Following a fall run at Los Angeles' Elephant Space Theatre, Roday ("Psych") and Weston ("House") reprise their performances in the New York run that officially opens Feb. 17.

Wayne Kasserman directs a cast that also features original Los Angeles cast members Amanda Detmer and Stefanie E. Frame.

Extinction, according to press notes, is "about what transpires between two college buddies whose annual outing of male-bonding and debauchery veers precipitously off course when unmet expectations spiral into a volatile showdown."

The production has scenic design by Steven C. Kemp, lighting design by Mike Durst and costume design by Gali Noy.

McKinley's plays include Welcome Home Rock Rogers, The Kitchen Sink Play, Funny, Floodplains, The Grave and Hero's Grave. The Off-Broadway engagement is presented by Red Dog Squadron, the Cherry Lane Theatre and Dule Hill. Performances are scheduled through March 14.

For tickets, priced $45, phone (212) 239-6200 or visit Telecharge.com. The Cherry Lane Theatre is located at 38 Commerce Street in Manhattan.
