"Explosive... Crackles with theatrical energy."-N.Y. Daily News

"Could be described as just a lot of men sitting around talking. But the talk has such varied range and musicality, and it is rendered with such stylish detail, that a complete urban symphony emerges.... Drivers return from jobs with stories that summon an entire ethos.... Throughly engrossing, Jitney holds us in charmed captivity."- New York Times

"Comic, soulful and immensely moving."-Time Out

"A transport of delight So vividly written ... it keeps you steadily amused, concerned and moved."-New York Magazine

Winner of the New York Drama Critics Award for Best New Play and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off Broadway Play.
