  Hellcab at Profiles Theatre - The Main Stage


Profiles Theatre - The Main Stage
4139 N. Broadway Chicago

For the fourth consecutive season, Profiles remounts its acclaimed production of Will Kern's Hellcab for the holidays. During the longest night of his life, a cab driver transports a bizarre and mysterious array of customers through the gritty streets of Chicago. Kern draws from personal experience as a former cabbie to create this alternately frightening, hilarious and poignant journey. 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. Set during a bitter cold Christmas Eve, Hellcab presents a rear-view image mirroring the passing parade of humanity.

"...The parade of jerks, drunks, horn dogs, and lost souls who pass through the taxi on a gray Christmas Eve remain as vivid and gnarly as ever. As the driver, Chicago newcomer Zlatomir Moldovanski brings a surprising vulnerability to a role that seems on the surface an exercise in sneering misanthropy. He might profess to hate humanity, but by the end we don't believe him."

"...Profiles Theatre brings Will Kern's "Hellcab" back to its stage for another holiday season showing. I got to see last year's production, and found it to be a wonderful offering. This season offers a new cast that remains under the tutelage of director and Profiles ensemble member Eric Burgher, and under his guidance, retains a quality that invites the repeat viewer as well as the first-time visitor."

"...As with most of the darker holiday fare, Hellcab ends on a note of hopefulness that is all the more edifying for having gone to dark places, and is one of the most appropriate shows for the Christmas spirit. Itís also hilarious, and features dozens of excellent performances. Thereís not a weak link in the whole show. Long-time theatre goers and newcomers alike who see the 2015 production will understand what made Hellcab so popular."
