Profiles Theatre Announces Final Extension of HELLCAB, Through February 24, 2013

hellcab-920Profiles Theatre announces the final extension of their hit 20th Anniversary production ofHellcab by Will Kern, directed by Profiles Co-Artistic Director Darrell W. Cox.  All cast members are continuing in their roles including Konstantin Khrustov as the driver and the original cast of 33 as the passengers. The production has been selling out since its opening on November 15, 2012 and has now been extended for the second and final time through February 24, 2013, at Profiles Theatre’s Main Stage, 4139 N. Broadway in Chicago.

Hellcab presents a day in the life story of a cab driver in for the longest night of his life as he transports a bizarre and mysterious collection of customers through the gritty streets of Chicago. Playwright Will Kern draws from personal experience as a former cab driver 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 smug lawyer, a born-again couple, a randy couple 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.

Profiles presents the 20th Anniversary production of Kern’s landmark play. First produced as a late-night show by Famous Door Theatre in 1992, the play was originally scheduled for twelve performances and ended up running for over nine years, becoming one of the longest running shows in Chicago theatre history. Hellcab has been performed all over the U.S. and abroad, including Scotland, Israel, Singapore, and Ireland. The play won numerous awards, including a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival and was adapted for the screen by Mr. Kern in 1998. Read more
