30 Plays in 60 Minutes.
"Still the most clever, most urgent show in town."J. Scott Hill, Chicago Stage Review
"Allen's tongue-in-cheek updating of a futurist entertainment... is unashamedly live and democratic theater."Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader
"...pure artistic expression, a sort of mental and emotional purging for the performers that, quite often, resonates in some way with the audience. Whether this resonance is characterized by laughter or a somber silence depends on the scene."Chicago Theatre Beat
Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind (30 plays in 60 minutes) Script
This is optional.
Having opened in 1988 and still playing today as the longest-running show in Chicago history, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind is an ensemble experiment in presenting "30 Plays in 60 Minutes." Each two-minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience. An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest. This collection of 90 comic, tragic, political, personal, and abstract plays gives you the chance to program your own evening of 30 Neo-Futurist plays to reflect the lives and experiences of your own ensemble.
