    A Girl’s Kerouac Dreams Go Astray in ‘The Mad Ones’

    Jesse Green

    November 20, 2017:

    One thing to be said for “The Mad Ones,” a musical about a young woman stuck in her car, is that it is highly disciplined in its automotive imagery.

    Samantha isn’t literally stuck in that car; she’s stuck in her life on the cusp of college. But her first song is called “The Girl Who Drove Away.” (Another is called “Drive.”) Her best friend, Kelly, keeps telling her to take her metaphorical foot off the brake and throw away the map.

    Elsewhere there are plenty of crossroads and roads less taken, not to mention references to “On the Road,” from which the show derives its overambitious title. As if that weren’t enough, Sam’s boyfriend, Adam, works in a tire shop; Beverly, her mother, is a car safety expert.
