Wayne Kasserman, who staged the fall run at Los Angeles' Elephant Space Theatre, re-creates the production for New York audiences. Previews began Feb. 13. The cast features original Los Angeles company members James Roday ("Psych"), Michael Weston ("House"), 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.
