Hellcab circles back to its beginnings as Paul Dillon, the original Cabbie from the 1992 world premiere, returns with a cast of 34 to star in this holiday comedy-drama at Profiles Theatre. In 1997, Dillon played the same role in the feature film version of Hellcab, leading a cast that included Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Gillian Anderson and John C. Reilly. Playwright Will Kern's landmark work follows a cab driver on the longest night of his life as he transports a bizarre and mysterious collection of customers through the gritty streets of Chicago. A former cab driver himself, Kern draws from personal experience to create this alternately frightening, hilarious and poignant journey. Profiles artistic director Darrell W. Cox returns to direct.

A dark and stormy night finds Betty and Bobby packing up a cabin in Neil Labute’s In a Forest, Dark and Deep. . Joe Jahraus’ direction in this newly acquired bigger addition – the old National Pastime Theatre, now Profiles’ Main Stage – doesn’t miss a beat, even with the additional breadth. He treats the characters as old friends, finding their way in extraordinary circumstances. Natasha Lowe and Darrell W. Cox - sister and brother - backslide into the same archetypes most siblings do - at once insulting each other but in the next moment sharing a nostalgic chuckle. Labute’s recognizable dialogue - along with Thad Hallstein’s set, Jeffrey Levin’s sound and John Kohn’s lighting– add just the right amount of spell. When the play ends you realize you’ve been taken on a ride and back again. Trust me you’ll be talking about these characters for weeks to come. Definitely go see it.
