Pollyanna Productions Presents HELLCAB November 30-December 16
Independent theater company Pollyanna Productions in association with the American Repertory Theater of WNY presents Will Allen's HELLCAB, November 30th to December 16th at the 330 Performance Space, 330 Amherst Street, Buffalo NY. All showtimes are 8 pm, $20 general tickets.
Drawing from personal experience as a former cab driver to create this compelling work, Will Allen's HELLCAB is a hilarious and poignant journey taken in a taxi-cab. Described as a dark comedy, HELLCAB is a series of vignettes surrounding a cab driver on a cold Christmas Eve evening. Becoming one of the longest shifts of his life, he finds himself transporting a bizarre and mysterious array of customers through the gritty streets of Chicago. These 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. HELLCAB presents a rear-view image mirroring the passing parade of humanity.
The current production of HELLCAB features American Repertory Theater of WNY alumni Nick Lama (A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE, DEAD ENGLISH) in the lead role of the taxi driver. Additional ART/WNY alumni include Shabar Shabazz Rouse (A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE) and Rich Kraemer (THE UNDERPANTS; BLOODY BLOODY Andrew Jackson). Rounding out the ensemble is Catherine Burkhart, Thorin Vallentine, Emily Styn and Aqueira Roberts. Pollyanna Productions producer John F Kennedy will lend his directorial eye for the production.
Presented at American Repertory Theater of WNY's 330 Performance Space, HELLCAB will have a three-week, Thursday through Saturday run scheduled from November 30th to December 16th. Tickets are $20 with showtime at 8 pm. For more information contact 716-697-0837 or visit pollyannaproductions.com or visit the social media site at firstname.lastname@example.org.
