Taxi To Broadway

Taxi To Broadway

By Christy Jones



"Hey, did anyone tell you look like James Dean!"   It happened once in a while. I had just lit a cigarette. (can't resist the slice of ham). Drawing into myself; playing the dead actor behind the wheel, cigarette dangling loosely from my pouting lips; angry at life. scowling at the world!   Christy Jones was no James Dean, but he could proudly tell people in his taxi that he was an actor nonetheless. And driving wasn't the only time he could play a character.   The author of this memoir found a passion for acting and made it to Stella Adler's Academy for Theater in the early '60s. But to make a decent living he drove a taxi across New York for six years. Christy never had an accident, though he had plenty of narrow escapes during his six years of driving. He preferred driving at night, so he could make the rounds of agents and producers during the day. But the streets can be treacherous... and dangerous. A cab only lasts a couple of years on New York City streets. After a long time spent dropping people off at their destinations, he finally arrived at his own: Broadway.   Taxi to Broadway is a story of fleeting conversations and adventurous nocturnal driving, but in the end, it is what all great stories should be - a tale about following your passions.
