Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind

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. Presented in our BT Cafeteria with lots of audience interaction, some refreshments and some surprises! This collection of comic, tragic, political, personal, and abstract plays presented in random order, reflects the lives and experiences of our Theatre Production Class. Go! (Running time Approximately 60 minutes).
