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.

This one man show is well presented, if you can get past the [cough, cough] real cigarette [cough, cough] smoking by the actor. We should have been warned in the initial offering by Goldstar and at the venue as well. When considering this show, think about your personal squick factor. This is Neil LaBute's adaptation of a classical Greek play, updated to the present and kept flowing for the entire hour and ten minutes or so. If I didn't have smoke aversion and nowhere to escape once the show had begun, I would have rated it higher.
Quotes & Highlights
- "[Judd's] is a formidable performance and, for the record, a great benefit of this longtime fringe company's new status as an Equity company. We get to see far too little of our greatly experienced actors in such environments, and Wrecks is an ideal showcase for Judd -- unplugged." --Chicago Tribune (3.5 stars)
