John C. McGinley Gets Great Reviews for “Glengarry Glen Ross”

December 11th, 2012 by Global Down Syndrome Foundation

John McGinleyThe reviews are in, and Global Down Syndrome Foundation International Spokesman John C. McGinley is getting raves for his performance as Dave Moss in “Glengarry Glen Ross,” which had its official opening over the weekend on Broadway.

Congratulations to a wonderful actor and a strong advocate for people with Down syndrome!

Here’s what the critics are saying:

“John C. McGinley is especially dazzling as the hothead who plans the office crime…”

Linda Winer, Newsday

“John C. McGinley steals the show in the first act, as Dave Moss.”

Emma G. Keller, The Guardian

“John C. McGinley steps on the gas pedal … shifting the play into the necessary high gear. As the manipulative intimidating salesman Dave Moss, McGinley spits out Mamet’s curses like angry red flares.”

Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

“John C. McGinley is wonderfully vile as Dave Moss, the resentful salesman who gets apoplectic when he thinks of how far behind he’s fallen in the race for sales …”

Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“John C. McGinley, who plays Dave Moss, the employee who hatches the scheme of stealing the leads on prospective customers that office manager John Williamson controls with an iron fist, has explosive moments that raise the production’s pulse.”

Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

“The production packs some heat in the performances of Bobby Cannavale and John C. McGinley …”

David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“McGinley is especially fierce, funny and occasionally frightening as Moss. To paraphrase his archrival Roma: Give him some scenery, he’ll show you how to chew it. Nobody acts with his canines like McGinley; after three minutes, you feel intimately acquainted with the inside of his mouth. (I mean this with admiration!)”

Scott Brown, New York Magazine’s Vulture

“… John C. McGinley, the abrasive senior doctor on ‘Scrubs,’ is wonderfully clueless as Dave Moss …”

Mark Kennedy, The Washington Post

“The good news is that John C. McGinley is aces.”

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

“… with notable exception of John C. McGinley, who fumes and foams with expert ease as the hot-­‐tempered, despicable Dave Moss …”

Brian Scott Lipton, Theater Mania
