"Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind": 30 Plays in 60 Minutes
“...unashamedly live and democratic theater” (Chicago Reader). **"Pay at the Door" ticket prices are determined by a base rate + the roll of a six sided die!** Students: $4 + roll of the die ($5-$10)Seniors/Military: $9 + roll of the die ($10-$15)General: $14 + roll of the die ($15-$20) Having opened in 1988, and holding the record for the longest-running show in Chicago history, “Too Much Light,” is an ensemble theatre experience presenting “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” Each play is performed in random order, as determined by the audience, with an on-stage timer keeping everyone honest. A countdown clock keeps things moving, and your admission price is determined at the door, in part by the roll of a six-sided die! Pair that with the audience’s spontaneous choice of the plays performed, and the “wildcard” of audience participation, Too Much Light can best be described as scripted improvisation. And there's a bonus -- if it's a sell out, we order PIZZA! Don't miss this dynamic, fresh, and totally unpretentious evening of theatre -- guaranteed never to be the same show twice as each evening the audience determines how many plays will be swapped out for the next show. Make your reservation today and pay at the door, OR you can purchase a "flat rate" ticket in advance for $18 (plus processing) and skip the uncertainty principle! Pay at the door pricing:Students: $4 + roll of the die ($5-$10)Seniors/Military: $9 + roll of the die ($10-$15)General: $14 + roll of the die ($15-$20)We accept cash, MC/Visa, and most debit cards.
