Global Taxi Driver issues thank you

TeAda Productions recently sent out a thank you to all the supporters of Global Taxi Driver this past summer!

Following the work-in-progress open rehearsal at East West Players in Los Angeles, the show traveled to the Twin Cities for the world premiere at Intermedia Arts. Between August and September the show underwent a tremendous transformation that brought together an ensemble of six performers from two cities to create a dynamic, energetic ensemble show that sparked dialogue and highlighted immigrant communities in the Twin Cities.
