Award-winning comedy duo the Pajama Men -- known for their wit, outlandish characters, fast-paced physical comedy, improv, and all-around lunacy -- offer the gift of a new show this holiday season. Just the Two of Each of Us is a thrilling, time-warped tale that weaves together the lives of seemingly unrelated characters to create a surprisingly cohesive -- and almost painfully hysterical -- story. Beulah would eat a spider to fit in with the cool kids. Nadine's arm is missing and she wants it back. Franz's biggest problem is that life is too easy. And a procrastinating king has only 700 years to get his shit together because if he doesn't, it's certain death for everyone. The Pajama Men (Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez) play all the show's characters, with live musical accompaniment by Kevin Hume. Learn More

This was truly a comedic theatrical company that does 30 plays in an hour...tho' when I saw it, they only got to 28 out of 30! LOL! They had you laughing from the get-go! Wished I'd been able to see them during their run to see how each production differed. Since they are leaving DC, if you happen to be in Chicago, check them out!!!!

i'd seen TMLMTBGB before, but the show here in dc was spectacular. frequently uproriously funny, sometimes head-scratchingly poetic, occasionally poignantly moving. seriously ... go see this show. (i'll prob. see it again before it leaves.)

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, which had its first performance on December 2, 1988, is now in its 20th year, making it the longest-running show in Chicago today. With its ever-changing "menu," Too Much Light... is an attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. With a menu of vignettes ranging from zany to risqué to profound, it’s the perfect interactive holiday treat for DC’s quickwitted audiences. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. The show's performers always appear as themselves on stage, speaking directly from their personal experiences. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with 29 other plays through high-energy audience participation. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. In every show, the performers create an unreproducable, "living newspaper" collage of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, and the visceral and experimental.
