Praise for Professional Skepticism "...playwright James Rasheed has somehow turned the world's most eye-glazingly dull profession into an entertaining, stiletto-sharp satire of office politics and macho head games. As enacted by an offbeat and very funny cast, it is flat-out terrific." -A.J. Mell, Backstage
"[A]n enjoyable evening of darkness...It should be noted that this is the inaugural production for the brand new Zootopia Theatre Company; however, they make no beginner's mistakes here. In fact, it is as solid a production as one could hope to find in the world of independent theater. " -Robert Buckwalter, NYTheatre.com "[T]he play often crackles with rich dialogue and keen detail." -Andy Propst, The Village Voice
"[A] dark comedy of corporate immorality ...Matthew J. Nichols plays [Paul] as a first-rate disgruntled sycophant." -Ginia Bellafante, The New York Times
