    You Could Call It Theater of the Cabsurd: ‘Take Me Home’ Is for 3 in a Taxi, in Real Time

    Neil Genzlinger

    February 1, 2014: Driving in New York City is difficult enough. Imagine doing it while performing. That’s what Modesto Jimenez, a.k.a. Flako, does in Take Me Home, the theater world’s latest experiment in shaking up the traditional relationship among audience, performer and performance space. He plays a cabdriver named Ace, and the theater is Ace’s cab. A real cab, which holds three audience members at a time. He drives them on a journey through the city and through a slowly evolving story about a fare beater and an enigmatic woman, all the while observing traffic laws, stopping for jaywalkers and occasionally pulling over to let other drivers go by so he can keep the pace he needs to keep.

    'Take Me Home' Brings Theater Experience Into the Back of a Cab

    Stephanie Simon

    February 3, 2014: I'm a riding in a cab through Lower Manhattan, but I'm not on my way to the theater. I'm already there. Take Me Home is a 40-minute immersive theater experience in the backseat of a moving yellow cab. “They’re guided by a New York cabbie/actor Modesto "Flako" Jimenez , who takes them on a surreal journey. So there's things that take place inside and outside of the cab and it's a completely unique theatrical experience,” said director Meghan Finn.

    Taxicab Confessions (From the Driver’s Seat)

    Diep Tran

    January 11, 2014: Modesto “Flako” Jimenez is both an actor and a cab driver, but he never thought he’d have a job that would require both skills at the same. Then he got the lead role in Take Me Home, a play that’s set in an actual taxi. “I’ve been training for this since 2006!” he says. That’s the year he started his day (or rather, night) job as a livery cab driver, a gig that gives him the freedom to clock in whenever he wants and to skip work for an audition.

    Indie Artists on New Plays #37: Lillian Meredith looks at Take Me Home

    Rochelle Denton

    January 17, 2014: Take Me Home, the new immersive piece by Alexandra Collier set in and around the back seat of a cab, is the theatrical kin to John Cage’s 4’33”; it’s less of a play and more of an experience, and it ever so slightly shifts the audience’s perception of the city we all take for granted every day. As the cab winds its way through the financial district, stopping at corners for longer monologues from and improv interactions with the cab driver (played with easy honesty by Modesto Jimenez), there is an acute and comforting familiarity. Cars honk, pedestrians wander by, the cabbie plays his music too loud and talks on his phone. It could be any ride home late at night.
