Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Director Cordie Nelson's underpaced production features a number of affecting performances, a real cab center stage, and a truly moving finale. But the route to that climax is a dispiriting slog."

"...The biggest issue with both me and my companion was the lack of investment each of the actors made in their characters. They did little more than get their lines out with some random emotion which was sometimes appropriate and sometimes not. The emotion did not come from inside or have a sense of understanding."

"...If this analytic approach sometimes dims the dazzle of previous incarnations, it more than redeems itself in an intimacy revealing a story arc reflecting the bleak zeitgeist of our own age. To put it another way, the play may be set in 1992, but we are still watching from 2018. The Agency Collective is to be commended for its cognizance of that fact, and its rejection of nostalgic stereotypes in favor of realistic portrayals documenting personalities and concerns still prevalent today. Those doubting that assessment need only abandon their cars for an evening and take a ride with the providers of safe passage through the dark streets of an uncertain world."
