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 actors of the Boxcar Playhouse deconstructed their performance space to terrific effect. The audience was compelled to move around to accommodate their movement, finding itself interestingly implicated in the drama "on stage." The minimalist sets and costumes were evocative and, frankly, charming. The play itself was good--I especially appreciated the interpolated quotations from Brecht's diary--though the bathetic finale felt a little over the top. All in all, wonderful! I will recommend it to friends.
"Don't you feel the pressure to change? Your neighbor has become one. And so has your wife. With their beautiful horns, rough skin, and cacophonous trumpeting--don't you think they are just a little bit better than you?"
Physical transformations, ideological conformity, and that nagging feeling you might never ever fit in come together in this sometimes hard-hitting, but always playful work of art.
