Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind is one of Chicago's biggest theatrical success stories. Created by Greg Allen, and written and performed by the Neo-Futurists, the original production in Chicago has been continuously running since the Reagan administration, and now San Francisco has its own sibling company. This innovative show is an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in one hour. The "menu" of plays is strung up on a clothesline and the audience determines the order by yelling out which piece they want to see next. Every performance is a unique experience, and the Neo-Futurists are masters of creating funny, personal, abstract, political and poignant plays. Learn More

An out of the box production! I enjoyed it so much, I had to go again. For people that have seen the multiple award movie and don't feel like going to a downer: Do not worry. The topic is dark, but the staging lighthearted - and you'll leave feeling happy. In an independent, intimate theater.

Different than the movie....but almost better...certainly better suited for cabaret. The dive theater was great. The interpretation and production were inspired and entertaining. The singing sometimes was a teensy off at times but I loved it.
Quotes & Highlights
“Hedwig and the Angry Inch brings theatre alive with the pounding sounds of rock and the funny sad voicing of a painful past. It is also an adult, thought-provoking musical about the quest for individuality.” —The New York Times

Under the direction of Nick A. Olivero, this cult musical gets a radical face-lift… again. Presented as a two-week limited engagement this past summer with multiple actors sharing the title role, it returns once again with more spectacle. Presented as a 1 hour and 30 minutes no holds barred rock show. If you saw it the first time around you’ll want to see it again, and if you missed it, here’s your chance to see what audiences were raving about.
