Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go BlindAt 10:30pm every Friday and Saturday a line of people form at the corner of Ashland and Foster waiting for entrance into the 11:30pm Neo-Futurist show, a different play every week. For 25 years the Neo-Futurists performed a show that made them famous, Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, every weekend, promising 60 plays in 30 minutes. With ticket prices dependent on a dice roll, new fresh material written weekly by the actors and a small cozy venue seating only 150 people, the Neo Futurists are funny, sociopolitical, relevant, and satirical. The shows are late night, never predictable, and always thought-provoking and entertaining. This is one of Chicago’s best weekend offerings.
