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.
