This ingenious movie has also spawn
ed several spin-off movies and plays with a similar theme.
One of these is the 5-year running Chicago play 'Hellcab' performed annually at the Lincoln West Theater
on Barry and Southport.
follows one cabdriver and his various fares throughout a night of Chicago
driving. The many colorful characters are all played by a small cast of about 6 or 7 local actors; it is largely based on improvisation and is never the same play twice.
Also, there is a movie called Subway Stories
that depicts several random and completely unrelated situations on the New York
subway. The stories are supposedly true and were compiled from New York residents mailing in their memorable subway anecdotes. However I also read somewhere that the idea for the movie was partly inspired by Jarmusch
's Night On Earth.
