Sometimes the phony commercialism and saccharine spirit of the holidays can get to people. If that happens to you, you might need to take a right in the Hellcab to get your Christmas mojo back. Playwright Will Kern's landmark work follows a cab driver on the longest night of his life, a bitterly cold Christmas Eve. Throughout his long shift, the eclectic collection of passengers includes a trio of drug-addicts, a born-again couple, a smug lawyer, and a randy duo on their way to a motel. A former cab driver himself, Kern drew from personal experience to create this alternately frightening, hilarious and poignant journey. Learn More

I thought 5 mins per play was awesome because I have a low attention span, but noooo , the plays were rather dumb and not funny. There is shock humor and nudity involved, however, rather ineffective or maybe just not my kind of thing. There were also people working for the show laughing loudly in the back to induce laughter in the audience, which I did not appreciate. Not funny, not amusing, left feeling very confused and seriously needed a couple shots of vodka to return to normalcy . Not worth seeing at all.
<p>Created by Greg Allen
Written by the New York Neo-Futurists</p> <p>The show is an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes--an original concept by Greg Allen and the Neo-Futurists. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. The performers always appear as themselves on stage, speaking directly from their personal experiences. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with 29 other plays through high energy audience participation. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. Each night of performance, the Neo-Futurists aim to create an unreproducable living newspaper of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, the visceral and experimental.</p>
