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

The Boxcar has a major hit this summer. The hood at 6th and Natoma is transformed into the best Plantshop in the Tenderloin. Director Nick A. Olivero and Musical Direction David Möschler – bring this production to the line as one of the best in 2011 in the SF Bay Area smaller Venues,, but hardly small since a whole city blocked sets the stage for the Plant and his victims ,, The other reviews here set the tone that most of the show happens around you as you enter the flower shop ,,, amazing staging ,,
But other reviews dont mention the talent - As Seymour John R. Lewis is sweet great voice and his plant stress is the best. Audrey Bryn Laux has a great sound an is staged as a more confident gal than we have seen in other productions (no lisp here). Mr Mushnik Alex Shafer has a strong performance wonderful dark side ,, Orin DDS played by Kevin Clarke steals the show – as he enters on his motor bike beats his girl and regulars in the hood try to stop him -(who are not part of the show) Clarke keeps the first a charmer and yanks random teeth as he walks into the plant shop.. The chorus is amazing and spends much time trying to keep the audience in line not to miss the action.

Quotes & Highlights
The original off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors played for 2,209 performances and more than five years at the Orpheum Theatre, winning 1983 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Musical and Outstanding Lyrics.
A black comedy favorite re-imagined specifically for the Boxcar Theatre Playhouse. Step outside (literally) onto skid row at 6th Street as Seymour, a poor, lonely flower shopkeeper, dreams of a better life and a place that’s green to share with the woman he pines for, Audrey. When a rare and exotic plant mysteriously appears, he finds the fame and fortune he was looking for, and a whole lot more. This carnivorous plant has a thirst for human blood, and Seymour is just the sap to get it.
With newly designed puppets representing the man-eating plant from outer space, this fast paced musical keeps you on your feet and your heart pounding.
